Josh: Promise You won't get mad
... ... ... ...
God: I promise
Josh: Why did You let so much stuff happen to me today?
God: What do u mean?
Josh: Well, I woke up late
Josh: My car took forever to start
Josh: at lunch they made my sandwich wrong & I had to wait
Josh: On the way home, my phone went DEAD, just as I picked up a call
God: All right
Josh: And on top of it all off, when I got home ~I just want to soak my feet in my new foot massager & 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 & I had to send one
of My Angels to battle him for your life. I let you sleep through that
Josh (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.
God: The first person who made your sandwich today was sick & I didn't want you to catch what they have, I knew you couldn't afford to miss work.
God: Your phone went dead bcuz the person that was calling was going to give false witness about what you said on that call, I didn't even let you talk to them so you would be covered.
Josh (softly): I see God
God: Oh and that foot massager, it had a shortage 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.
Josh: I'm Sorry God
God: Don't be sorry, just learn to Trust Me.... in All things , the Good & the bad.
Josh: I will trust You.
God: And don't doubt that My plan for your day is Always Better than your plan.
Josh: 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...

We might be complaining our daily lives like Josh did because all that was there in our mind were the negatives. We never believe the simple word 'contented' so we seek every crook and cranny to make it become better but when the effort is not paid off we start to blame and never realizing we are already so much better than other people, people without basic shelter, sustenance, love and little kids that do not own any thing near your Roxy pencil case which you used to feel proud owning it or even think that that was what you should deserve. God has plans for everyone of us, if you're not doing good, it doesn't mean that God has forsaken you; if you're doing good, it doesn't mean that God thinks that you deserve what you have. So, appreciate and be grateful.
It's a shame that I did not hold on to the one that I needed than I wanted.
Too complex to understand, too much to take in. But I believe He will come and comfort me.
