What To Ask From God!


I asked God
to take away my pain.
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.
Her spirit was whole,
her body was only

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

I asked 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...
finally you have
the idea!
