" Why is that?" the Creator asked as the two of them together finally started to get the rusted lug nuts off the tire.
" I'm late for an appointment and I'm mad at the circumstances".
" Nicholas, I'm using the circumstances of this to develop your character".
" Why would you do that for?" he asked in frustration as the two of them finally got all the rusted lug nuts off and took the old tire off.
" Because you look and depend on me and not yourself".
" Oh!" Nicholas replied with a shocked stare as they put the small spare tire on and put the lug nuts back on.
" I use problems in your life to build Christ like character".
" How can I handle problems without getting bitter and upset?".
" First, remember that my plan is good and also rejoice and give thanks".
" Give thanks when I'm having problems?".
" Remember Nicholas, instead of asking ' why me'" the Creator said as Nicholas got into his car to take off. " Ask instead what do you want to learn".
The Creator walked away in the rain.
