And God Said No

I asked God to take away my pride, and God said, No.
He said it was not for him to take away,
but for me to give up.

I asked God to make my handicapped child whole,
And God said, No.
He said her spirit is whole, her body is only temporary.

I asked God to grant me patience, and God said, No.
He said that 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.
He said He gives blessings,happiness is up to me.

I asked God to spare me pain, and God said, No.
He said, “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.
He said I must grow on my own, but
He will prune me to make me more fruitful.

I asked God if He loved me, and God said, YES!!
He gave His only Son who died for me,
and I will be in Heaven someday because I believe.
I asked God to help me love others as much as He loves me,
And God said, “Ah…finally, you have the idea.”
