Worth Passing On

I received a forwarded email this morning. I do not pass these along, so please don’t email me with a chain forward and expect it to go any farther. It dies in my inbox.  But this is one I couldn’t help sharing.

Jeremiah 29:11″For I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord. They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.”
.Subject: : God, can I ask you something?

Me (in a tizzy) : God, can I ask you something?

GOD: Sure.

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,

GOD: Yes

Me: My car took forever to start,

GOD: Okay….

Me (growling): At lunch, they made my sandwich wrong and I had to wait

GOD: Hmmmm..

Me: On the 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 wouldn’t work. Nothing went  right today! Why did you do that?

GOD: Well 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 might have hit you if you were on the 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 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.

Scriptural References: II Samuel 22:31, Proverbs 3:5, Hebrews 2:13
“The generous will prosper; those who refresh others will themselves be refreshed.. .” (Proverbs 11:25)

In all things give thanks.  1 Thes 5:18

    Hi Dear friend,
    A good, good one, this.
    The other day I was feeling similarly and the Lord led me to some verses in Psalms about Christ before and during the crucifiction. Made me realize that so much of what I gripe about is NOTHING compared to what he went through.’
    Love you,
