Found this on the internet and thought I would share.  I don't know if it has been posted before so if it has I'm sorry.

  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 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 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 ask God to help me LOVE others, as much as He loves me.
  God said...Ahhhh, finally you have the idea.

Execelent message!

respectfully yours in Yeshua


if not you, who? if not now, when?
if not here, where? if it is to be it is up to me!
John 3:17 for he came not into the world to condemn the world, but that the world thru him might be saved! Rom 8:1 there is therefore no con-
demnation to those who are in
christ Jesus...
