 I asked God to take away my pain. 
God said, No
- It is not for me to take away, but for you to give it up.
 I asked God to make my handicapped child whole.
God said, No
- Her spirit was whole, her body was only temporary.

  I asked God to grant me patience.
God said, No
- Patience is a by-product of tribulations; it isn't granted, it is earned
 I asked God to give me happiness.
God said, No
- I give you blessings.  Happiness is up to you

 I asked God to spare me pain.
God said, No
- Suffering draws you apart from worldly cares
and brings you closer to me.

I asked God to make my spirit grow.
God said, No
- You must grow on your own,
but I will prune you to make you fruitful.

  I asked for all things that I might enjoy life.
God said, No
- I will give you life so that you may enjoy all things.

 I ask God to help me LOVE others,
as much as he loves me.

God said...
Ahhhh, finally you have the idea.
