I Asked God…

I ASKED GOD

I asked God to take away my pride.

God said “No”.

It is not for me to take away, but for you to give it up.

I asked God to make my handicapped child whole.

God said “No”.

Her spirit was whole, her body was only temporary.

I asked God to grant me patience.

God said “No”.

Patience is a by-product of tribulations; it isn’t granted, it is earned.

I asked God to give me happiness.

God said “No”.

I give you blessings, happiness is up to you.

I asked God to spare me pain.

God said “No”.

Suffering draws you apart from worldly cares and brings you closer to me.

I asked God to make my spirit grow.

God said “No”.

You must grow on your own, but I will prune you to make you fruitful.

I asked for all things that I might enjoy life.

God said “No”.

I will give you life so that you may enjoy all things.

I ask God to help me LOVE others, as much as he loves me.

God said… Ahhhh, finally you have the idea!
