"G-d Said No"

A friend sent this to me and I wanted to share it with others who can benefit.

Hope you enjoy!

I asked G-d to make my handicapped child whole.

G-d said, No.

His spirit is whole, his body is only temporary.


I asked G-d to grant me patience.

G-d said, No.

Patience is a byproduct of tribulations;

it isn't granted, it is learned.


I asked G-d to give me happiness.

G-d said, No.

I give you blessings; Happiness is up to you.


I asked G-d to spare me pain.

G-d said, No.

Suffering draws you apart from worldly cares

and brings you closer to me.


I asked G-d to make my spirit grow.

G-d said, No.

You must grow on your own!

but I will prune you to make you fruitful.


I asked G-d for all things that I might enjoy life.

G-d said, No.

I will give you life, so that you may enjoy all things.


I asked G-d to help me LOVE others, as much as He loves me.

G-d said...Ahhhh, finally you have the idea.
