Today is Thursday, September 20th, 2012; Karen's Korner #2404
Something emailed to me by Al and Mary Tesdahl. It is titled "For Your Blessing! Good Food For Thought":
Me: God, can I ask you a question?
Me: Promise you won't get mad.
God: I promise.
Me: Why did you let so much happen to me today?
God: What do you mean?
Me: Well, I woke up late.
God: Yes. Okay.
Me: At lunch they made my sandwich wrong and I had to wait.
Me: On my way home, my phone went dead, just as I picked up a call.
God: All right.
Me: And on top of it all, when I got home I just wanted to soak my feet in my new foot massager and relax. But it wouldn't work!! Nothing went right today! Why did you do that??!!
God: 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 would have hit if you were on the road.
Me: (ashamed): Oh!
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): Ok.
God: Your phone was dead because the person that was calling you was going to give 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 shortage that was going to throw out all of the power in you 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: 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. I love looking after my children.
