Even though we canít always see it at the time, if we look upon events with some perspective, we see that things always happen for our best interests. We are always being guided in a way better than we know ourselves.

As the story goes, there was once a man who asked God for a flower and a butterfly. But instead God gave him a cactus and a caterpillar. The man was sad. He didnít understand why his request was mistaken. Then he thought: Oh well, God has too many people to care for. He decided not to question. After some time, the man went to check up on his request that he had left forgotten. 

To his surprise, from the thorny and ugly cactus a beautiful flower had grown. And the unsightly caterpillar had been transformed into the most beautiful butterfly. 

God always does things right! His way is always the best way even if to us it seems wrong. If we ask God for one thing and receive another, we can be sure that He will always give us what we need at the appropriate time.

What we want is not always what we need! God never fails to grant our petitions, so letís keep on going to Him without doubting or murmuring. Todayís thorn is tomorrowís flower!

He always gives us what we need  in the right time. He always gives the very best to those who leave the choice to Him.
