God Said, NO


Certainly one of my favorites...






I asked God to take away my pride.
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 by product 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 for all things that I might enjoy life.
God said, No.
I will give you life, so that you may enjoy all things.


I ask God to help me LOVE others, as much as He loves me.

God said...Ahhhh, finally you have the idea.

King's Shepherd, I keep finding it and keep posting it. I bet you remember me posting it not long ago. Must be something, I need to keep reading. Darn if I couldn't get the print smaller. I worked and worked but it wouldn't cooperate. Blonde moment with no patience, lol!
