I came across this goody the other day and wanted to share it with you, just in case you’ve been asking God for the same things. It’s something to ponder.

I asked God to give me happiness.

God said, No ~ I’ll 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 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 help me love others, as much as He LOVES me.

God said… Aha! Finally, you have the right idea.
