A CONVO WITH GOD
Me: God, can I ask you a question?
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 you mean?
Me: Well, I woke up late...
Me: My car took forever to start...
Me: At lunch, they made my sandwich wrong and I had to wait...
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 wanted to watch my new TV and 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 and 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): Oh...
God: The first person who made your sandwich today was sick, and I didn't want you to catch what they have... I knew you couldn't afford to miss work.
Me (embarrassed): Yeah, that's true. I'm...
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: Oh and that TV... 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 and 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...
