~Something for God To Do box~

To: You
From: God
Date: Today
Subject: Yourself
Ref: Life
This is God.
Today I will be handling All of your problems for you.
I do Not need your help. So, have a nice day.
I love you.
P.S. And, remember…
If life happens to deliver a situation to you that you cannot handle,
do not attempt to resolve it.
Kindly put it in the SFGTD Something for God To Do box.
It will be addressed in My time, not yours.
Once the matter is placed into the box, do not hold onto it.
If you find yourself stuck in traffic, don’t despair.
There are people in this world for whom driving is an unheard of privilege.
Should you have a bad day at work,
think of the man who has been out of work for years.
Should you despair over a relationship gone bad,
think of the person who has never known what it’s like to love and be loved in return.
Should you grieve the passing of another weekend,
think of the woman in dire straits, working twelve hours a day,
seven days a week to feed her children.
Should your car break down, leaving you miles away from assistance,
think of the paraplegic who would love the opportunity to take that walk.
Should you notice a new gray hair in the mirror,
think of the cancer patient in chemotherapy who wishes she had hair to examine.
Should you find yourself at a loss and pondering what is life all about,
asking what is my purpose?
Be thankful.
There are those who didn’t live long enough to get the opportunity.
Should you find yourself the victim of other people’s bitterness, ignorance, smallness or insecurities, remember, things could be worse.
You could be them!

Thank You Sweet Friend, Sometimes I find myself trying to take it out of the box. Please put it back...
Yes, we do have so many things to be Thankful for.
One of them is you, my Precious Friend.
Love Ya, Me:)

Just the right words at the right time. I spent the day thinking I was in charge...and not doing too well...then, after reading this, I remembered...I'm not in charge at all!

You're such a caring person and always in my prayers.

Mary, thanks for reminding us that God is there for us at all times and we just need to let Him handle things in His own way and time. Your post is beautiful just as you are. Love and Hugs, Pat
