The way to trouble God is not to come at all."

Saw this while browsing a quotation site today and I liked it very much that I decided to share it with everybody here. I remember way back of a friend who once told me that she does not bother God with too much asking. That she only comes to him when things go out of hand or are quite impossible and to which she has no ready answers to. Then she asked me pointedly .... 'what bout you?'
I smiled and said .... 'I tell God everything'.
Yeah I do. Am like a little child who runs to his father when a bully steals his marbles. I tell God bout all my sorrows and joys, my fears and disappointments, my hopes and dreams, my bitterness and anger, and even more so in my struggles. In short, everything that transpires in my life good or bad. I tell Him about the jerks (male and female) I've met in the course of living and how I very much would like to beat them down to a pulp because they have hurt me hugely. I also tell Him about that nice cute guy who made my heart flutter next door (oh the thrill of being twenty-something but that was long ago...). I also ask Him to heal my favorite aunt of her heart ailment. And that time I simply adored that lovely dress I saw in the mall. Oh a thousand and one things which comprise the life of an ordinary human being called me. And if you know how humans pray... in the telling is the Asking.
No, I don't come to Him as a spotless saint but as one who acknowledges His supremacy in all of creation. That even if He is the KING... I know that He has time to stoop down to this tiny helpless insignificant creature who looks up to Him as a Father -- a loving Father. Because I know that He loves me more than anyone can or could... and that He knows me so much better than even I could know myself.
Like Mother would always say.... 'life is better lived with God than without God... cos without Him you won't last a day...'
May God bless you with His light and love.
