… and GOD said …

I asked God to take away my pride. And God said "No". 

God said it was not for God to take away, but for me to give up.

I asked God to grant me patience. And God said "No". 

God said patience is a by-product of tribulations.  It isn’t granted, it is earned.


I asked God to give me happiness.  And God said "No". 

God said God gives me blessings, happiness is up to me.


I asked God to spare me pain. And God said "No". 

God said suffering draws me apart from worldly cares and brings me closer to God.


I asked God to make my spirit grow. And God said "No".

God said I must grow on my own. But God will prune me to make me fruitful.


I asked for all things that I might enjoy life. And God said "No". 

God said God would give me life, that I may enjoy all things.

I ask God to help me love others, as much as God loves me.  .

And God said "Ah, finally you have the idea!"
