God Said...

Today I received a really interesting email. Well at first glance you would think not, in fact I usually delete all chain emails or long emails right away, I don't have the time to trawl through things like that. But today was different, I had been asking God to show me the way forward through something I am struggling with. I really didn't hear His voice at all this morning when I was praying. Do you ever get those moments or even seasons? The season when it feels like all hell has broken loose in your life. Last week life was perfect & this week it has all fallen apart... do you ever get that? Well I have been having a few weeks like that & each week seems to get worse.

Here is the email that I received, before I tell you how it spoke to me I want to hear what it says to you. So have a read & I will do another post about how this cute little email hugely impacted me.

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.

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

  1. I love the cheesy smileys :D

    ..Maybe sometimes we ask God for too much, like he is going to just make everything right and easy just like that, when in fact its really up to us to use the situation to grow and learn and just use what God has already given us :)
