• I asked God to take

    I asked God to take away my pride,
    God said no; it is for you to give it up.

    I asked God to make my handicapped child whole,
    God said no, his spirit is whole and his body is temporary.

    I asked God to take away my pain,
    God said no, suffering and pain brings you closer to me.
    And takes you away from sensual pleasures.

    I asked god to make my spirit grow pure,
    God said no; you have to nurture it yourself
    I’ll help you prune it and make it fruitful

    I asked God to give me everything in life that I can enjoy,
    God said no; I will give you life so that you have everything

    Lastly, I asked God to help me love others,
    As much as he loves me.
    God said…..Ahhhh! finally you have the idea.
