This is true.

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 says, “Ahhhh, finally you have the idea.”
