Deers in Andaman island

I asked God to take away my pride, and God said, "No".

He said it was 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 grand 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 would 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".
