Questions!!!

{EAV:1fcd3774ad049424}

QUESTIONS!!!

I asked God to take away my pain.

God said, No.

It’s 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.

Her spirit is whole, her body is only temporary.

I asked God to grant me patience. 

God said, No.

Patience is a bi-product of tribulations, it isn’t granted, it’s 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 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….Ahhhhh…..

you have finally got the idea!!!

My sister in law gave me this to read one day and I thought, WOW! What an incredible way to look at things. So this is for all those who have “Questions” on their minds that they have been wanting to ask God or has asked Him. I hope it’s as encouraging to my readers as it was for me 🙂
