ASK GOD

Post  ChristianLady on Tue 27 May 2008, 3:19 pm

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

I asked God to make my
handicapped child whole.
God said, No. Her spirit is whole
and her body is 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 might enjoy all things.

I asked God to help me LOVE others,
as much as He loves me.
God said...Ahhhh,
finally you have the idea.
