Just the other night at a hometown football game My wife and I ran into my old high school flame And as I introduced them the past came back to me And I couldn't help but think of the way things used to be
She was the one that I'd wanted for all times And each night I'd spend prayin' that God would make her mine And if he'd only grant me this wish I wished back then I'd never ask for anything again
Sometimes I thank God for unanswered prayers Remember when you're talkin' to the man upstairs That just because he doesn't answer doesn't mean he don't care Some of God's greatest gifts are unanswered prayers
She wasn't quite the angel that I remembered in my dreams And I could tell that time had changed me In her eyes too it seemed We tried to talk about the old days There wasn't much we could recall I guess the Lord knows what he's doin' after all
And as she walked away and I looked at my wife And then and there I thanked the good Lord For the gifts in my life
Sometimes I thank God for unanswered prayers Remember when you're talkin' to the man upstairs That just because he doesn't answer doesn't mean he don't care Some of God's greatest gifts are unanswered Some of God's greatest gifts are all too often unanswered Some of God's greatest gifts are unanswered prayers
Carrie from Ansonia, Cti think it means that, even though you might want something really bad at that moment, GOD knows that you will be missing out on a better life. so, eventually you will thank GOD that he did not let you go down that path. My sister was very much in love with someone, and she wanted to have a baby...and prayed and prayed for it, but she did not get pregnant. 2 months later, he was killed in a horrible car accident. And GOD knew that she would not have been able to handle that.
Morgan from Atlanta, Gai kinda thought it meant that god already has a plan for you and you may not know it yet but he knows whats best and if you dont get what you want or it takes a while your just gonna have to live with it because it may not be a part of your plan.a very meaningful song.
George from Jo'burg, South AfricaIts more like be thankfull for what you have now in your life as things might have been different if you chose to go the other route.
