God Said No

God Said No

I asked God to take away my addiction,
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 the byproduct 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 the worldly cares,
And brings you closer to me.

I asked God to make my spirit grow,
God said no,
You mut grow on your own, but I will prune you and make you fruitful.

I asked God for all things that I might enjoy life,
God said no,
I give you life so you can enjoy all things.
I asked God to help me LOVE others,
As much as He loves me,
God said… Ahhh, finally you have the idea.
