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.


I don't know who wrote this but it made me smile so I thought I would share Smiley

if not you, who? if not now, when?

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...
