I Asked God…

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 & 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.”
I asked God to help me help those weaker than myself.
God said, “Ah, you finally got the idea.”
