Trust in The LORD

Me (in a tizzy): God, can I ask you something?

GOD: Sure.

Me: Promise you won’t get mad?

GOD: I promise.

Me (frustrated): 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.

Me (growling): At lunch, they made my sandwich wrong and I had to wait.

GOD: Hmm.

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

GOD: All right.

Me (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 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 might 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): 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.

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.

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.

  1. I suddenly remembered the story of “Footprints in the sand”. It’s very inspiring. Sometimes we think that God makes us suffer by giving us a lot of headaches and sufferings, but the truth is God does these things to make us a better person, and for us to keep on believing to our Lord. May we see the struggles as God’s calling that we should trust in Him and not on ourselves, God bless you… ^_^
