Hello. 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…
If life happens to deliver a situation to you that you cannot handle, do not attempt to resolve it yourself! Kindly put it in the SFGTD (something for God to do) box. I will get to it in MY TIME. All situations will be resolved, but in my time, not yours.

Once the matter is placed into the box, do not hold onto it by worrying about it. Instead, focus on all the wonderful things that are present in your life now.

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 chemo 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 one of them!

Should you decide to send this to a friend, thank you. You may have touched their life in ways you will never know!

Maybe, you don't believe in God. Maybe you dislike discussing religion. But you were made for more. Stop looking elsewhere to fill that void. Just give God a chance. I gave him a chance to prove himself to me and my life has never been the same. Yes, there are sad times and bad things do happen to everyone. But when you have God, even tough times are a blessing. You enjoy life to the fullest and you change to a better person. You learn to balance life and things flow right. It's worth it. Challenge God to reveal himself to you. Get to know Him. I haven't met someone who has and has willingly returned to their old ways. Trust me.
