I asked God to take away my grief.
And God said, "No....
It is not for Me to take away,
But for you to work through."

I asked God to make my broken heart whole.
And God said, "No ....
Your spirit is whole,
Your pain is only temporary."

I asked God to grant me patience.
And God said, "No....
Patience is a by-product of tribulation,
It isn't granted, it's earned."

I asked God to give me happiness.
And God said, "No....
I give blessings,
Happiness is up to you."

I asked God to spare me pain.
And God said, "No...
Suffering draws you apart from worldly cares
And brings you closer to me."

I asked God to make my spirit grow.
And God said, "No....
Grow on your own.
I do the pruning that makes you fruitful."

I asked God if He loved me.
And God said, "Yes....
I gave My only Son to die for you."

I asked God to help me love others
As much as He loves me.
He said, "Ah, finally, you have the idea."

Nice one GCB.

Very true GCB.

As much as He loves me.


Most difficult one for man, but that is the whole purpose of our lives.
