Ahhh Finally

I asked God to take away my habit.
God said:  No. It is not for me to take away, but for you to give it up.

I asked God to grant me patience.
God said:  No. Patience is a by-product of tribulations; it isn't granted, it is learned.

I asked God to give me happiness.
God said:  No. I give you blessings. Happiness is up to you.

I asked God to spare me pain.
God said:  No. Suffering draws you apart from worldly cares & brings you closer to Me.

I asked God to make my spirit grow.
God said:  No. You must grow on your own, but I will prune you to make you fruitful.

I asked God for all things that I might enjoy life.
God said:  No. I will give you life, so that you may enjoy all things.

I asked God to help me LOVE others, as much as He loves me.
God said:  Ahhhh - finally you have the idea!
