The Lord's Timing

Got this in an e-mail . . . it's too good not to share with you.

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

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

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
