Have you ever witnessed a miracle?
Sometimes, certain things may tend to fall in place only to fall apart eventually.
Sometimes certain things seem to be going haywire, only to miraculously or mysteriously set in.
Most of the time, when we're in the process of doing something and it doesn't turn out the way we planned, we get annoyed. We also say 'God, I wish this turned out better', but in a hurried and half-hearted manner because we're more concerned about the final output than about praying to God, at that point of time. It's almost like you know it wouldn't happen, but you're just saying it because you've run out of things to say. It is basically just a formality.

But, did you know? In certain situations if you really want something and you earnestly pray for it (after putting in your share of hard work), there is a good chance that it might happen. The words uttered to God would still be the same, but now you know you really want it to happen and you cannot afford to be sarcastic or doubtful. So you utter them with all sincerity. It's definitely not just a formality. For all you know, you might be destined for it.
Speaking of destiny, you might feel that the entire concept sounds foolish. After all, if things are destined to happen in a certain way, how would a prayer/wish influence the outcome of an event. I had this confusion till I stumbled upon these words:
Someone asked God, 'If everything is already written in destiny, then why should we wish for something?'
God smiled and replied 'May be in a few places I would have written- As you wish'
Above all this, try as much as you may, certain things do not seem to be cut out for you. You've probably known all along and later you know for sure that it just wouldn't happen. It might be disappointing but we've to accept that we are probably destined for better (read greater)things in life. We would be heart broken on realizing that the most awaited event would not materialize. But at the same time, trying not to get too emotional about it and slowly accepting the fact that perhaps it all happens for a good reason, some good reason (it better be damn good!) makes it somewhat easier to handle things in a better way.
Heaven does hide from its creatures, the holy book of fate. We might never know when things would happen the way we want and when they don't. But we know there is a probability of things happening the right way, our way. If there is a probability, why not give it an optimistic try?
Sometimes miracles do happen, you just have to wish for it.
