I seem to be having a BAD DAY– –try like one after another lately. Too many going-out-of-their-way to be rude and inconsiderate people, things going wrong-falling over-breaking-WHAT NEXT? kind of bad-days-in-a-row.
I am NoT a patient person with this kind of stuff.
And then a loved one just posted this on fb tonight…..
Me: God, can I ask You a question?
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…
Me: My car took forever to start…
Me: At lunch they made my sandwich wrong and I had to wait…
Me: On the way home, my phone went DEAD, just as I picked up a call…
God: All right
Me: And to top of it all off–when I got home, I just wanted to soak my feet in my new foot massager & relax–But it wouldn’t work–!
Nothing went right today! Why did You do that?
Me: (humbled) Oh~
God: The first person who made your sandwich today was sick and I didn’t want you to catch what they had because I knew you couldn’t afford to miss work.
Me: (embarrassed) Okay…
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. 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…
