I Asked God...
 
 
I asked God to take away my problem.  God said, “No,
it’s not for me to take away, but for you to give 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, “Ahhh, finally you have the idea”.

Decisions become easier when our will to please
God outweighs our will to please this world.
