Me (in a tizzy): God, can 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 …
Me: My car took forever to start. 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 (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 the other 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 that might have hit you if you were on the road ….
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 circuit 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 am 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 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 are welcome child. It was just another day being your God.
