I Asked God

I asked God to take away my grief.
     And God said, "No....
     It is not for Me to take away,
     But for you to work through."
I asked God to make my broken heart whole.
     And God said, "No ....
     Your spirit is whole,
     Your pain is only temporary."
I asked God to grant me patience.
     And God said, "No....
     Patience is a by-product of tribulation,
     It isn't granted, it's earned."
I asked God to give me happiness.
     And God said, "No....
     I give blessings,
     Happiness is up to you."
I asked God to spare me pain.
     And God said, "No...
     Suffering draws you apart from worldy cares
     And brings you closer to me."
I asked God to make my spirit grow.
     And God said, "No....
     Grow on your own.
     I do the pruning that makes you fruitful."
I asked God if He loved me.
     And God said, "Yes....
     I gave My only Son to die for you."
I asked God to help me love others
     As much as He loves me.
     He said, "Ah, finally, you have the idea."
