    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 u 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 & I had to wait

    God: Huummm

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

    God: All right

    Me: 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

    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 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.

    Me (embarrassed):Okay

    God: Your phone went dead because 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.

    Me (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.

    Me: I'm Sorry God

    God: Don't be sorry, just learn to Trust Me.... in All things , the Good & the bad.

    Me: I will trust You.

    God: And don't doubt that My plan for your day is Always Better than your plan.

    Me: 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...

    Playing devils advocate here, who had to die by the drunk driver so that person could be saved?

    Nobody, technically. He was a high ranking congressman. His wife kept vodka on the night stand so he wouldn't fall. Eventually he was kicked out when his public relations team could not coverup a drunken escapade with FANNIE FOX, a Washington DC stripper down at a tidal basin. Look it up.
    In this case, he pulled over when his car ran out of gas. He sobered up and begged for help . He got it. He began to help others. Six months later, his heart gave out. He is being nurtured and repaired.

    No one was sacrificed :angel:
