My day started out something like this:
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, 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.
Me: And on top of all that, when I got home I just wanted to soak my feet in my new
|foot massage 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
would have hit you if you were on the road. Me: (ashamed)
God: The person who made your first sandwich today was sick and I didn’t want you to catch what he has. I knew you couldn’t afford to miss work.
Me: (embarrassed): Ok…
God: Your phone went dead because the person who was calling was going to give false witness about what you said during that call. I didn’t even let you talk to them so that you would be covered.
Me: (softly) I see, God. God: Oh, and that foot massage 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: 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.
