ask and ye shall receive

I asked God to grant me patience. God said… Patience is a by-product of tribulations; it isn’t granted, it is earned.I asked God to give me happiness. God said… I give you blessings. Happiness is up to you.

I asked God to spare me pain. God said… Suffering draws you apart from worldly cares and brings you closer to me.

I asked God to make my spirit grow. God said… 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… 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.
