Scripture Challenge week 52-LOVE



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 said...Ahhhh, finally you have the idea.

This is the final bible study of this year. I hope you enjoyed these as much as I enjoyed sharing them and I encourage you to do one as well.
Bring on the new year!
