A Conversation

Me: God, can I ask You a question?
God: Sure.

Me: Promise You won't get mad?
God: I promise.

Me: Why did You let so much stuff happen to me today?
God: What do you mean?

Me: Well, I woke up late.
God: Yes.

Me: My car took forever to start.
God: Yes.

Me: At lunch they made my sandwich wrong and I had to wait.
God: Yes.

Me: On the way home, my phone went dead, just as I picked up a call.
God: Yes.

Me: And on top of it all off, when I got home I just wanted to soak my feet in my new foot massage 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 My 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 you if you were on the road.
Me (ashamed): Um...

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): Okay.

God: Your phone went dead because the person that was calling was going to give false witness about what you had said on that call. I did not let you talk to them so you would be covered.
Me (softly): I see God.

God: Oh and that foot massage, it had a short that would knock 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 all things. Trust in the good and the bad.
Me: I will trust You, Lord.

God: And don't ever 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. I love looking after My Children.
