I asked God

• I asked God to make my handicapped child whole. But God said “No, his spirit is whole, his body is only temporary.

• I asked God to grant me patience, God said, “No, patience is a by-product of tribulation. It is not granted, it is earned”.

• I asked God to take away my pain. God said, “No it is not for me to take away, but for you give it up’.

• 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 from 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 God for all things so that I might enjoy life, God said, “No, I will give you life, so that you may enjoy all things”.

• I asked God to help me love others as much as he loves me God Said, “Ahhh, Finally! You are on the right path” (YOU have the idea).
