WHEN GOD SAID 'NO'



I asked God to take away my pride. And God said "No." He said it was not for him to take away, but for me to give it up.
  
I asked God to make my handicapped child whole. And God said "No." He said her spirit was whole, her body was only temporary.
  
I asked God to grant me patience. And God said "No." He 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." He said he gives me blessings, happiness is up to me.
  
I asked God to spare me pain. And God said "No." He said suffering draws you apart from worldly cares and brings you closer to me.
  
I asked God to make my spirit grow. And God said "No." He said I must grow on my own. But he will prune me to make me fruitful.
  
I asked for all things that I might enjoy life. And God said "No." He said I will give you life, that you may enjoy all things.
  
I asked God to help me love others, as much as he loves me. And God said, "Ah, finally you have the idea!"
