Praying


God Said No


I asked God to take away my grief,
And God said "NO."
He said it was not for Him to take away,
But for me to work through.


Hands


I asked God to make my broken heart whole,
And God said "NO."
He said my spirit is whole.
My pain is only temporary.


Hands


I asked God to take away my pride
And God said "NO."
He said it was not for Him to take away,
But for me to give up.


Hands


I asked God to make
My handicapped child whole,
And God said "NO."
He said the body is only temporary.


Hands


I asked God to grant me patience
And God said "NO."
He said patience is a by-product of tribulation.
It isn't granted, it's earned.


Hands


I asked God to give me happiness
And God said "NO."
He said He gives His blessings,
Happiness is up to me.


Hands


I asked God to spare me from pain
And God said "NO."
He said sufferings draw you apart from
Worldly cares and brings you closer to Him.


Hands


I asked God to make my spirit grow
And God said "NO."
He said I must grow on my own,
But He will prune me to make me fruitful.


Hands


I asked God if He loved me
And God said "YES."
He gave His only Son who died for me,
And I will be in heaven someday because I believe.


Hands


I asked God to help me love others
As much as He loves me
And God said,
"Ah, you finally have the idea!"
