Chocholate and vegetable
I woke up from a bad dream last night and couldn't go back to sleep. The dream reminded me of many disappointments happened to me in the past. Things like trusting and loving good friends but found myself betrayed. Unanswered prayers, or even things(not necesarily bad) happened to me that I didn't particularly asked for.
At times I blamed God a lot. I was frustrated with God.
But just looking at my children, I was thinking, what could a perfect God be like in their little mind.... or maybe just let me say, perfect parents. What would they want me to be like.....hmmm, that could be quite interesting. I guess the perfect mum would be the one who always says yes whenever they want chocholates, coke, lollies and chips,etc. The last thing they want from me is vegetables and water. However I'm in constant battle with them when it comes down to eating.
And when I looked back at my life, this is exactly what had happened. I kept asking God for chocholates and coke, and at times I've been so desperate and so passionate about them, but God kept giving me vegetables and water.
I don't necessarily have all the things I want that I think would make me really happy, but when I look again, I do have all the things I need. The chocholates might make me happy for a little while, but if that's all I'm eating then I'm in for big trouble down the track, although my childish mind wouldn't want to think that way.
So, this is what I felt God spoke to me last night. Chocholates and vegetables. Don't get so caught up with chocholates, just be happy with the vegetables in my life and eat them with a good attitute.
And you know what, a mom is a mom. After the child eats his dinner, she still gives the dessert anyway. God will make us happy if we make Him happy first.
