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 byproduct of tribulations; it isn't granted, it is

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 to make my spirit grow.
God said, No. ...You must grow on your own! , but I will prune you to make you and 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...Ahhhh, finally you have the idea.
