God Said No

I asked God to take away my habit.
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.
His spirit is whole, his body is only temporary.


I asked God to grant me patience.
God said, No. Patience is a byproduct of tribulations;
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 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 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... Ahhhh, Yes!
finally you have the idea.
