God Said “No!”

This is an email I received this morning and I thought I’d share it with you. I love to get emails like this one!

 

Me:   “God, take away my bad habit”

God: “No. It’s not for me to take away, but for you to give up”

Me:   “God, make my autistic grandson whole.”

God: “No. His spirit is whole, his mind and body are just temporary.”

Me:   “God grant me patience.”

God: “No. Patience is a byproduct of tribulations; it isn’t granted, it’s learned.”

Me:   “God give me happiness.”

God: “No. I will give you blessings. Happiness is up to you.”

Me:   “God, spare me pain and suffering.”

God: “No. Suffering draws you apart from worldly cares and brings you closer to me.”

Me:   “God, give me all things that I may enjoy life.”

God: “No. I will give you life that you may enjoy all things.”

Me:   “God, help me to love others as you love me.”

God: “Ahhh, finally you have the idea.”

    It’s all about Love. Love is all we need. People use this word so freely without considering what it really means. It’s definitely NOT about chocolates and flowers (although those are lovely gestures), but it’s about always being there for someone in good times and hard times, and that is exactly what Jesus promises us when we receive Him into our lives.

      (Hebrews 13:5)…”I will never leave you, nor forsake you…” This is a promise we can count on as one of those who have obeyed the gospel of Christ. He has “agape” love for us, it is forever lasting. He will always take in all those who seek Him in truth and always love and provide for us.

      Yes…and since it is from God, we can absolutely count on it. He will never leave us. We live and breathe and have our very being by the grace of God.

      Love is always being taught to us. Sometimes it’s a personal lesson, and it can be a difficult lesson. But we will always be better off after coming through what He is teaching us. Thanks for the reply and have a great day!

      Steve 🙂

      I’m not sure how I got this message, it doesn’t sound like it was intended for me…

      This message is for Shattered in Him, in response to her message “LOVE!” above on November 16th. We have been having some powerful conversations in which it seems God is connecting us. Not sure how it works on WordPress that the message is shown to you as well. Mystery? Don’t worry, you’re not having another “Arnie” moment, Steve. 🙂

      Haha…glad to hear you two are talking. I’m not sure how things work on WP either…guess they notify the author of a post on any and all comments made, even if they aren’t intended for that author?!

      Maybe I’m not so “punchy” after all.
