Conversation with God

But let all who take refuge in you be glad; let them ever sing for joy. Spread your protection over them, that those who love your name may rejoice in you. Psalm 5:11

Note:  the conversation was forwarded to me in an email so I don't know the author to give credit

Me:  God, can I ask you a question?

God:  Sure.

Me:  Promise you won't get mad?

God:  I promise

Me:  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.

God:  Okay.

Me:  At lunch they made my sandwich wrong and I had to wait.

God:  Hmmmm.

Me:  On the way home my phone went dead just as I picked up a call.

God:  Okay.

Me:  And on top of all that, when I got home I just wanted to soak my feet in my new 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 would have hit you if you were on the road.

Me: (ashamed)

God:  The person who  made your first sandwich today was sick and I didn't want you to catch what he has.  I knew you couldn't afford to miss work.

Me:  (embarrassed):  Ok...

God:  Your phone went dead because the person who was calling was going to give you false witness about what you said during that call.  I didn't even let you talk to them so that you would be covered.

Me:  (softly):  I see, God.

God: Oh, and that foot massager 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:  And don't doubt that My plan for your day is always better than your plans.

Me:  I won't God.  And let me just tell you God, thank you for everything today.

God:  You are welcome, child.  It was just another day before your God, and I love looking after my children.

What an Amazing, Loving Heavenly Papa we have!  I choose to trust YOU!!!!  Praise God.
