It seems to so clearly demonstrate that what we might think are ‘bad’ things, are in fact… blessings and protection.
Human: God, can I ask You a question?
Human: Promise You won’t get mad…
God: I promise
Human: Why did You let so much stuff happen to me today?
Human: Well, I woke up late
Human: My car took forever to start
Human: On the way home my phone went DEAD, just as I picked up a call
God: All right
Human: And on top of it all off, when I got home ~I just want 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 My angels to battle him for your life. I let you sleep through that
Human: (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 then.
God: The first person who made your sandwich today was sick. I didn’t want you to catch what they have, I knew you couldn’t afford to miss work.
Human: (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.
Human: I’m Sorry, God
God: Don’t be sorry, just learn to Trust Me…. in All things – the good, and what you think is bad.
Human: I will trust You.
God: And don’t doubt that My plan for your day is Always Better than your plan.
Human: I won’t God. And let me just say, “Thank You for everything today.”
