Trust in HIM

on February 17, 2012
(Extracted from a Friend’s Facebook Wall)
Me: God, can I ask You a question?God: Sure.

Me: Promise You won’t get mad … …

God: I promise.Me: Why did You let so much stuff happen to me today?

God: What do u mean?

Me: Well, I woke up late.

God: Yes.

Me: My car took forever to start.

God: Okay.

Me: At lunch they made my sandwich wrong & I had to wait.

God: Huummm.

Me: On the way home, my phone went DEAD, just as I picked up a call.

God: All right.

Me: And on top of it all off, when I got home ~ I just want to soak my feet in my new foot massager & relax. BUT it wouldn’t work!!! Nothing went right today! Why did You do that?

God: Let me see, the death angel was at your bed this morning & I had to send one of My Angels to battle him for your life. I let you sleep through that.

Me (humbled): OH

GOD: I didn’t let your car start because there was a drunk driver on your route that would have hit you if you were on the road.

Me: (ashamed)

God: The first person who made your sandwich today was sick & I didn’t want you to catch what they have, I knew you couldn’t afford to miss work.

Me (embarrassed): Okay.

God: Your phone went dead because the person that was calling was going to give false witness about what you said on that call, I didn’t even let you talk to them so you would be covered.

Me (softly): I see God.

God: Oh and that foot massager, it had a shortage that was going to throw out all of the power in your house tonight. I didn’t think you wanted to be in the dark.

Me: I’m Sorry God.

God: Don’t be sorry, just learn to Trust Me…. in All things , the Good & the bad.

Me: I will trust You.

God: And don’t doubt that My plan for your day is Always Better than your plan.

Me: I won’t God. And let me just tell you God, Thank You for Everything today.

God: You’re welcome child. It was just another day being your God and I Love looking after My Children…

This story once again reminded me that “Everything happens for a reason” and God always has his plans laid out for us. We often lament when things do not go our way. We get frustrated, upset and angry with God for not giving us what we wanted. I for one, am guilty of so. I complain of not getting a higher-paying job, I complain of not having a better boss, I complain of not having someone special to share my happiness with, I complain of … … everything else… …
But I have forgotten to Thank God for all that he has given me… Whilst I am complaining of not having a higher-paying job, some of my friends out there have been jobless for years. Whilst I have a terrible boss, some of my friends are still waiting for a boss to come along. Whilst I am complaining that I have been single for the longest time ever, some of my friends are in the midst of getting their divorce papers. Well… I guess for all that has happened, God must have his reasons for so doing and I am just waiting for Him to reveal the rest of his plans to me. And with that… I thank Him for all that he has done and May he continue to love and guide us as we continue on our journeys.
God is (always) watching us … From a Distance … Thank you God, Thank you for all that you have done… …
