Have you ever had a day that started out bad and seemed to have gotten progressively worse? I often wonder if it’s God’s way of telling us to slow down and refocus.
I’ve seen this story a few times before and it’s always a great reminder to change my perspective on things. Enjoy!
Conversation with God (Author Unknown)
Me (in a tizzy): God, can I ask you something?
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.
Me (growling): 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 (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 didn’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.
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 that 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 you 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 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.
