No...

And God Said, "No" By    Claudia Minden Weisz

I asked God to take away my pride,  And God said, "No."
He said it is not for Him to take away,   but for me to give up.
I asked God to make my handicapped child whole,
And God said, "No."   He said her spirit is whole,
Her body is only temporary.
I asked God to grant me patience,
And God said, "No."
He said that patience is a by-product of tribulation,
it isn't granted, it's earned.
I asked God to give me happiness,
And God said, "No."
He said He gives blessings,
Happiness is up to me.
I asked God to spare me pain,
And God said, "No."
He said, "Suffering draws you apart from worldly
cares and brings you closer to Me."
I asked God to make my spirit grow,
And God said, "No."


He said I must grow on my own, but He will prune me to make me fruitful.
I asked God if He loved me,
And God said, "Yes."
He gave me His only Son who died for me,
and I will be in Heaven someday because I believe.
I asked God to help me love others,
as much as He loves me.
And God said,
"Ah, finally you have the idea."
