The following was sent to me by a friend and it gives all of our “bad days” a whole different perspective.
Me: God, can I ask you a question?
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.
Me: My car took forever to start.
Me: At lunch they made my sandwich wrong and I had to wait.
Me: On the way home, my phone went dead, just as I picked up a call.
GOD: All right.
Me: And on top of it all, when I got home I just wanted 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 the other angels to battle him for your life. I let you sleep through that.
Me (humbled): Ohhh…
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): Gulp.
GOD: The first person who would have made your 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 that was calling was going to give false witness about what you said on that call, I didn’t even let you talk to him so you would be covered.
Me: (softly) Oh, I see…
GOD: Oh and that foot massager, it 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: (meekly) I’m very 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 my Lord.
GOD: And don’t doubt that my plan for your day is always better than your plan.
Me: I won’t God. And please let me just tell you Lord, thank You for everything today.
GOD: You’re welcome child. It was just another day being God your Father, and I love looking after my children.
