My day started out something like this:

Me: God, can I ask you a question?

God: Sure.

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.

God: Yes.

Me: My car took forever to start.

God: Okay.

Me: At lunch, they made my sandwich wrong and I had to wait.

God: Hmmm.

Me: On the way home my phone went dead just as I picked up a call.

God: Okay.

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.

 

Every day we are fortunate to wake up and see is a day to be grateful for. If you are reading this article, you are blessed abundantly. Keep in mind there

are millions around the world who would love to trade places with you.
