A Teen’s Wishes

As a teen—

I asked God for good looks that I might be popular with other teens—
--I was given acne, lots of freckles, crooked teeth and big ears that I might glorify
God for what He has given me.

I asked God for rich parents that I might have everything I need to live life comfortably—
--I was given parents without wealth that I might learn humility.

I asked God for perfect parents that they might teach me about life and how to get ahead
--I was given parents with many, many problems, imperfections and disabilities
that I may learn through them Godly love, compassion, forgiveness, mercy,
wisdom, and patience.

I asked God for intelligence that I might learn information quickly and easily—
--I was given to struggle to learn even the most elementary of tasks that I may
learn wisdom.

I asked God for lots of friends that I might be happy—
--I was given shyness to learn to seek a friendship and relationship with Jesus
Christ, Savior of the world.

I asked God for a perfect life that I might avoid pain and discomfort in life—
--was given periods and occasions of depression, rejection from others and
personal tragedy that I may learn to pray daily.

I asked God for strength in all things that I might be righteous—
--I was given to periods of doubt, weakness of character, and questionable
decisions that I may depend upon the Lordship and majesty of Jesus Christ.

I got nothing I asked God for for I failed to invoke in my petitions Godly wisdom, faith, hope, mercy and unselfishness but due to the unconditional love of God through the sacrifice and death of Jesus Christ I was given everything I needed and had ever hoped for . In time when I looked back on my years as a teen I came to realize that You, Almighty God, My loving, living Omnipotent Father, most richly blessed me.


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
