Just Asking

(Received in email)


Just asking

Me: God, can I ask you a question?

God : Sure.

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.

God : Yes.

Me: My car took forever to start.

God : Okay.

Me: At lunch they made my sandwich wrong and I had to wait.

God : Huummm.

Me: On the way home, my phone went dead, just as I picked up a call.

God : All right.

Me: And on top of it all, when I got home I just wanted to soak my feet
in my new foot massager and relax, but it wouldn't work!!!
Nothing went right today! Why did you do that?

God : Let me see, the Death Angel 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.

Me: (humbled): OH...

GOD : I didn't let your car start because there was a drunk driver on your
route that would have hit you if you were on the road.

Me: (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.

Me: (embarrassed): Ok...

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 shortage 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 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

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.
