Man: God, can I ask You a question?

God: Sure

Man: Promise You won’t get mad …..

God: I promise


Man: Why did You let so much stuff happen to me today?

God: What do you mean?

Man: Well, my alarm didn’t go off and I woke up late …..

God: Yes


Man: My car took forever to start…..

God: Okay

Man: At lunch they made my sandwich wrong & I had to wait for it to be remade …..

God: Hmmmm


Man: On the way home, my phone went DEAD, just as I picked up a call …..

God: All right

Man: And on top of it all off, when I got home, I just wanted to soak my feet in my new foot massager & relax. BUT it wouldn’t work!!! Nothing went right today! Why did allow all that if you love me so?

God: Well let me see, the death angel was at your bed this morning & I had to send one of My Angels to battle him for your life. I let you sleep through that …..


Man (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.

Man: (ashamed)

God: The first person at the lunch counter who made your sandwich today was sick & I didn’t want you to catch what they have, and I knew you couldn’t afford to miss work.


Man (embarrassed): Okay

God: Your phone went dead because the person that was calling was going to give false witness about what you said on that call, so I didn’t even let you talk to them so you would be covered.

Man (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 all night long.


Man: I’m Sorry God

God: Don’t be sorry, just learn to TRUST Me ….. in All things , the good and the bad.

Man: I will trust You.

God: And don’t doubt that My plan for your day is Always Better than your plan.


Man: 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 …..

Romans 8:28, “And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.”
