I ASKED GOD

I ASKED GOD

I asked God to take away my habit
God said No
It is not for me to take away, it is for you to give it up.

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

I asked God to grant me patience
God said No
Patience is produced by tribulation, it isn't granted, it is learned.

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 away from worldlly cares and 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 that I may enjoy life
God said No
I will give you life that you may enjoy all things.

I asked God to help me love others as much as He loves me
God said "Ah, finally you have the right idea."
