Subject: Talking to God

 

Me (in a tizzy): God, may I ask you something?

 

GOD: Sure.

 

Me: Promise you won't get mad?

 

GOD: I promise.

 

Me (frustrated): 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 (growling): At lunch, they made my sandwich wrong and I had to wait

 

GOD: Hmmmm..

 

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

 

GOD: All right

 

Me (loudly): And to top it all off, when I got home, I just wanted to soak my feet in my foot massager 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 my 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 to work that might have hit you if you were on the road early.

 

Me (ashamed): ............

 

GOD: The first person who made your sandwich today was sick and I didn't want you to catch what they have, I knew you couldn't afford to miss work.

 

Me (embarrassed): Oh.....

 

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

 

Me (softly): I see God.

 

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: 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 try harder to trust you God.

 

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.
