I asked GOD

I asked GOD why ME?
and HE said....
why NOT U!

1.  I asked God to send me his friends...He sent you.
2.  I asked God to take away my pain.  God said, No.  It is not for me to take  away, but for you to give it up.
3.  I asked God to make my handicapped child whole.  God said, No. His spirit is whole, his body is only temporary.
4.  I asked God to grant me patience.  God said, No.  Patience is a by-product of tribulations; it isn't granted, it is earned.
5.  I asked God to give me happiness.  God said, No.  I give you blessings, happiness is up to you.
6.  I asked God to spare me pain.  God said, No.  Suffering draws you apart from worldly cares and brings you closer to me.
7.  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.
8.  I asked for all things that I might enjoy life.  God said, No. I will give  you life so that you may enjoy all things.
9.  I asked God to help me LOVE others as much as He loves me. God said... Ahhh, finally you have the idea!
