Conversation with God

No comments »

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 you 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 and I had to wait.
 
God: Hmmm.
 
Me: On the way home my phone went dead just as I picked up a call.
 
God: Okay.
 
Me: And on top of all that, when I got home I just wanted to soak my feet in
my new foot massager and relax, but it wouldn't work!!! Nothing went right
today! Why did you do that?
 
God: Well, let me see. The Death Angel was at your bed this morning and I
had to send one of the other 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 person who made your first sandwich today was sick and I didn't
want you to catch what he has.
I knew you couldn't afford to miss work.
 
Me: (embarrassed): Ok…
 
God: Your phone went dead because the person who was calling was going to
give false witness about what you said during that call. I didn't even let
you talk to them so that you would be covered.
 
Me: (softly) I see, God.
 
God: Oh, and that foot massager had a short 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.
 
Keep this going if you believe in HIM. You never know who needs to receive
this message.
 
Enjoy life now……..it has an expiration date!

Acceptance

No comments »

How can I accept each day as exactly the way it should be? How can I accept that every person, place and situation are in my life for a reason? My Higher Power has never failed me and no matter how tough things have been in my life, I have always been taken care of. Just as I have moved to a place of thinking that I would be unable to take another step forward, my Higher Power proves to me that trusting is what allows the tough times to pass. Life isn't easy and working a solid program doesn't mean that my life will be "idiot proof." Program allows me to handle those difficult people and situations and know that this too shall pass. It's not what's happening in my life that matters but how I react to it.
