Just Askin'

Me:  God, may I ask you a question?

God:  Sure.

Me:  Promise you won't get mad.

God:  I promise.

Me:  Why did you let so much bad 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: All right.

Me:  And on top of it all, 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:  Let me see, the Angel of Death 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 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):  Ok...

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 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. I want to 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.
