Church of Hope

I asked God to grant me patience.


God said, No.


 Patience is a byproduct of  tribulations; it isn't granted, it is earned.


 

 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 for all things that I might enjoy in life.


God said No.


 I will give you life so that you may enjoy all things.


 

 I asked God to help me LOVE others, as much as God loves me.


 God said...

 

 Ahhhh, finally you have the idea.

 

 

 Stop telling God how big your storm is.


 Instead tell your storm how big  your GOD is.
