I asked God why I wasn't rich.
And He showed me a man with the wealth of a thousand kings,
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
gotten 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.
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 to.
