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 by-product of tribulations it is not greanted, it is learned.

I asked God to give me happiness.  God said, No.  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 LOVE OTHERS AS MUCH AS HE LOVES ME. GOD SAID, AHHHH FINALLY YOU HAVE THE IDEA.
