Danny Vick sent this to me, the messages are sound and I thought you all might enjoy it.


I asked God to take away my habit.

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.

His spirit is whole, his body is only temporary.




I asked God to grant me patience.


God said, No. Patience is a byproduct of tribulations;

it isn’t granted, it is learned.




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 God for all things that I might enjoy life.


God said, No.

I will give you life, so that you may enjoy all things.




I asked God to help me LOVE others, as much as He loves me.

God said… Ahhhh, finally you have the idea.
