Man: Promise you won’t get mad? GOD: I promise.
Man (frustrated): Why did you let so much stuff happen to me today?GOD: What do you mean?
Man: Well I woke up late. GOD: Yes.
Man: My car took forever to start. GOD: Okay….
Man (growling): At lunch, they made my sandwich wrong and I had to wait. GOD: Hmmmm..
Man: On the way home, my phone went dead, just as I picked up a call GOD: All right
Man (loudly): And to top it all off, when I got home, I just wanted to soak my feet in my foot massager and relax, but it wouldn’t work. Nothing went right today! Why did you do that? GOD: Well 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.
Man (humbled): Oh… GOD: I didn’t let your car start because there was a drunk driver on your route that might have hit you if you were on the road
Man (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
Man (embarrassed): Oh….. GOD: Your phone went dead because the person that was calling was going to give a false witness about what you said on that call, I didn’t even let you talk to them so you would be covered
Man (softly): I see God GOD: Oh and that foot massager, it had a short circuit 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.
Man: I’m sorry God. GOD: Don’t be sorry, just learn to trust me………in all things, the good and the bad
Man: I WILL trust you God GOD: And don’t doubt that my plan for your day is always better than your plan
Man: 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.
LESSON LEARNED: TRUST IN THE LORD WITH ALL YOUR HEART AND LEAN NOT ON YOUR OWN UNDERSTANDING.
