PRIORITIES

 

I asked God to grant me patience.

God said, No. Patience is a by-product of tribulations;

it is not 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 life.

God said, No. I will give you life so that you may enjoy all things.

 

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

God said… Ahhhh, finally you have the idea.
