I Asked God..

I asked God to take away my bad habit.
God said, No. Rolling Eyes
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. Jumping Jacks

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

So let me get this right. You have to shoulder life's injustices without divine intervention? You have to take personal responsibility for your own actions and provide your own means of happiness and fulfillment?

Aside from the imaginary friend, this believer is living the life of an atheist! Welcome aboard!

What this all says to me is if you ask god for anything the answer is always going to be no, so why ask?
