And God said No

Author - Unknown
 

I asked God to take away my pride,
And God said "No."
He said, "It's not for Me to take away,
But for you to give up."

I asked God to make my handicapped child whole,
And God said "No."
He said, "Her spirit is whole,
Her body is only temporary."

I asked God to grant me patience,
And God said "No."
He said, "Patience is a byproduct of tribulation,
It isn't granted, it's earned."

I asked God to give me happiness,
And God said "No."
He said, "I give you blessings,
Happiness is up to you."

I asked God to spare me pain,
And God said "No."
He said, "Pain tells Me what to heal,
And brings you closer to Me."

I asked God to make my spirit grow,
And God said "No."
He said, "You must learn how to grow,
And I will prune you to make you fruitful when you ask."

I asked God to help me love others,
As much as He loves me,
"Ah finally,
You have the idea."
