God said NO

Hey guys,

I got this from an email from my mom (she got it from her friends)

so I couldn’t give credit to the one who made this – but just to make it clear, I do not own this.

I posted this cuz I think it’s really cute – not only that, it also contains some truth that we have already known.

So hope you enjoy this as much as I do!

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.

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.
