And God Said No!


I asked God to take away my pride. And God said "No". He said it
was not for him to take away, but for me to give it up.
I asked God to make my handicapped child whole. And God said
"No". He said her spirit was whole, her body was only temporary.
I asked God to grant me patience. And God said "No". He said
patience is a by-product of tribulations. It isn't granted, it is earned.
I asked God to give me happiness. And God said "No". He said he
gives me blessings, happiness is up to me.
I asked God to spare me pain. And God said "No". He said
suffering draws you apart from worldly cares and brings you closer to me.
I asked God to make my spirit grow. And God said "No". He said I
must grow on my own. But he will prune me to make me fruitful.
I asked for all things that I might enjoy life. And God said "No". He
said I will give you life, that you may enjoy all things.
I ask God to help me LOVE others, as much as he loves me. And
God said, Ah, finally you have the idea.

Amen.
Peace of Christ to ALL
