Loving Others



I asked God to grant me patience……….
God said, “No.” Patience is a by-product of tribulations; it isn't granted, it is earned.

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 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.
