Man: Promise you won’t get mad?
GOD: I promise.
Man (frustrated): Why did you let so much stuff happen to me today?
GOD: What do you mean?
Man: Well I woke up late
Man: My car took forever to start.
Man (growling): At lunch, they made my sandwich wrong and I had to wait.
Man: On the way home, my phone went dead, just as I picked up a call
GOD: All right
Man (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 angel of death 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.
Man (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
Man (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.
Man (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.
Man (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.
Man: I’m sorry God.
GOD: Don’t be sorry, just learn to trust me………in all things, the good and the bad
Man: I WILL trust you God
GOD: And don’t doubt that my plan for your day is always better than your plan
Man: 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.
LESSON LEARNED: TRUST IN THE LORD WITH ALL YOUR HEART AND LEAN NOT ON YOUR OWN UNDERSTANDING.
