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 the 1st person making my sandwich did it all wrong and a second person had to remake it for them and I had to wait.
Me: On my way home my phone went DEAD, just as I picked up a call.
God: All right.
Me: And to top 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?
God: Let me see, the angel of death was at your bed this morning & I had to send one of my Angels to battle him for your life. I let you sleep through that.
Me: (Humbled and surprised) 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 and shocked) hmm…
God: The first person making your sandwich today was sick & I didn’t want you to catch what they have, 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 the foot massager, it had a shortage that was going to throw out all of the power in your house tonight. I didn’t want you to be in the dark.
Me: I’m sorry God.
God: I accept you apology but 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. Go to my Word. Remember what I say. Keep it in your heart and mind.
Me: I will do my best to stop doubting you Lord. I will go to your word and truly listen, obey, apply. Help me see things the way You see them. And let me just tell You God, Thank You for EVERYTHING today.
In Jesus Name and for His sake, AMEN
