I asked God why I wasn’t rich.
And He showed me a man with the wealth of a thousandkings,
who was lonely and had no one to share it with.
I asked God why I wasn’t beautiful.
And He showed me a woman more beautiful than any other,
who was ugly because of her vanity.
I asked God why he’d allowed me to become old.
And He showed me a boy of 16, who lay dead at the scene of a car accident.
I asked God why I didn’t have a bigger house.
And He showed me a family of six, who’d just been evicted from their tiny shack,
and were forced to live on the street.
I asked God why I had to work.
And He showed me a man who couldn’t find a decent job,
because he’d never learned to read.
I asked God why I wasn’t more popular.
And He showed me a socialite with a thousand friends,
who all left the moment the money and parties were no longer there.
I asked God why I wasn’t smarter.
And He showed me a natural born genius,
who was serving life in prison for making ill use of his knowledge.
I asked God why He put up with a thankless sinner like me.
And He showed me His Bible, and His Son who took my place at the judgment.
And I knew then how much He loved me.
What’s eating you today?
Are your problems weighing heavy on your heart?
Know, then, that you are loved.
And have a WONDERFUL day!
Then brighten someone else’s day, in any way you care too.
Remember, a candle loses nothing by lighting another candle.
Just reach out and touch someone’s life and brighten up their day.
