from a spiritual point of view, you are important

I asked God …

 

I asked God to take away my pride and God told me “No”.

He said that pride is not taken away. It has to be rejected.

I asked God to cure my daughter, bedridden, and God told me “No”.

He said that patience is the result of trials. They do not give it, they deserve it.

I asked God to give me happiness and God told me “No”.

He said that he gives Blessings, and whether I will be happy depends on me.

I asked God to save me from pain, and God told me “No”.

He said that suffering separates man from worldly cares and draws nearer to Him.

I asked God for spiritual growth, but God told me “No”.

He said that the spirit should grow itself, and He will only cut me to make fruit.

I asked God to help me love others just as He loves me.

And God said: “At last you understand what you need to ask.”

I asked for strength, and God sent me tests to temper me.

I asked for wisdom, and God sent me problems that I need to puzzle over.

I asked for courage, and God sent me danger.

I asked for love, and God sent me in need of my help.

I asked for goods, and God gave me opportunities.

I did not receive anything from what I asked for.

But I got everything I needed.
