You wake up very early
in the morning
and go to mass,
praying with all your heart
that you can make ends meet.
And a lot of times crying
because you just feel so desperate.
You prayed for money and riches
so you could live the comfortable life
you always wanted.
You do your charities as much as you can
helping those who are in need.
in spite of all the good things you do,
you're business is still running low,
and your income does not guarantee you
a worry-free, financially stable life.
So what's going on?
How will you deal with it?
Do you think God is unfair?
Always remember that God
is never unfair,
He is always just and fair
in his judgments and dealings
God always sees what you do,
good or bad,
even those you do in secret
for nothing escapes His eyes.
Even when you do in darkness,
He sees it as if it's daytime.
One important thing
you have to realize
is God doesn't want you to get rich
or give you business
that will reward you
with so much money
for then you will possibly be
too busy to pray
or to attend masses
and possibly forget about Him.
So instead of making you rich,
He will be giving you
things that no money
could ever buy or equal
such as good health, long life,
safety from harm or danger, etc.
He will also reward you
with wisdom, enlightenment
knowledge and understanding
which are far greater things
you can ever have in your lifetime.
And last but not least,
He will also give you happiness and contentment
you never thought possible
even when you don't have enough.
He will make you realize that you can be happy
and be contented even with having only a little.
And when you pray for yourself only,
when your intentions are selfish,
then surely you will never be granted.
Your prayers will not be heard.
Along with your personal intentions,
also pray for the good of others -
your family, friends and the people around you.
Then wait for God to act.
Don't try to force Him to do what you wish.
Be patient and God will give you in His time
and only when you deserve what you prayed for.
And in case you don't deserve what you prayed for,
He will give you another one
which is better and more suited for you.
