Romans 8:28 (KJV)
28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
Me: (in a tizzy) : God, can I ask you something?
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,
Me: My car took forever to start,
Me: (growling): At lunch, they made my sandwich wrong and I had to wait.
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
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
Me: I won’t God. And let me just tell you God, thank you for everything
GOD: You’re welcome child. It was just another day being your God and I
love looking after my children.
