Looking After My Children ~ “Things aren’t always what they seem.” Part 2

2 Feb

So a dear friend sent this to me today and it really helped! I hope it encourages you as well!

A Conversation between me and God…
(copied ~ author unknown)

Me (in a tizzy) : God, can I ask you something?
GOD: Sure. …

Me: Promise you won’t get mad?
GOD: I promise.

Me (frustrated): Why did you let so much stuff happen to me today?
GOD: What do you mean?

I woke up late

I woke up late

Me: Well I woke up late,
GOD: Yes

Me: My car took forever to start,
GOD: Okay….

Me (growling): At lunch, they made my sandwich wrong and I had to wait
GOD: Hmmmm..

Me: On the way home, my phone went dead, just as I picked up a call
GOD: All right

Me (loudly): And to top it all off, when I got home, I just wanted to soak my feet in my 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 might have hit you if you were on the road.
Me (ashamed): …………

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): Oh…..

GOD: Your phone went dead because the person that was calling was going to give a 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 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.

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.
