God said, No.-
His spirit is whole, his body is only temporary.-

I asked God to grant me patience.-

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.-

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.-

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