I'm not very religious but......
I'm not very religious but I really liked this so I thought I would share.

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 grant me patience.
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....Suffering draws you apart from worldly cares, and brings you closer to me.

I asked God 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 get it.

Peggy e-mailed it. Yeah I really liked it.  Think because it is self-empowering.

I love this. It actually made me cry and made some sense to me. Through all of this I have prayed everyday. I actually started feeling a little discouraged, like I was wasting my time. At one point I ask, Lord do you even hear my prayers anymore, thinking myself unworthy. You answered my questions with this post. Thank you.
