I Asked God to Take Away My Pain Poem
I asked God to take away my pain. God said, “No. It is not for me to take away, but for you to give it up.”
I asked God to make my handicapped child whole. God said, “No. Her spirit was whole, her body was only temporary.”
I asked God to grant me patience. God said, “No. Patience is a by-product of tribulations; it isn’t granted, it is earned.”
I asked God to give me happiness. God said, “No. I give you blessings. Happiness is up to you.”
I asked God to spare me pain. God said, “No. Suffering draws you apart from worldly cares and brings you closer to me.”
I asked God to make my spirit grow. God said, “No. You must grow on your own, but I will prune you to make you fruitful.”
I asked God for all things that I might enjoy life. God said, “No. I will give you life so that you may enjoy all things.”
I asked God to help me love others, as much as he loves me. God said “Ahhhh, finally you have the idea.”
Note: I did not write this poem. I do not know who wrote it.
