It was all for my Good...

I cried out to God in disdain, when my dreams were shattered
and my wishes weren't fulfilled
I questioned God's intention... His grand plans...
I never understood why God would let me feel such pain...
Why would He sit by
And let me cry again and again,
I could not comprehend His ways
Why was I to be in such torturous pain every day,
Tears flowing every night and yet
Why would He ignore my pleas...
I cried, God remained silent (so I thought)
I thought He had turned away His eyes,
as if He had forsaken me
but no...

Then I heard His answer "I have always been with you...
in your dark times and in your good,
My son, I always had a perfect plan for you
and she never was a part of it
So do not be grieved..."

And as days passed on, the clouds before my eyes started drifting away,
The haze cleared, the tumult died down and the limpid truth unfolded...
I finally realised that I wouldn't have been as happy as I am today, had my wish been granted...
God had actually saved me for life!
Now I realise God You are truly there,
You love me utterly and You really do care for me...
When God answers us with a 'NO', His 'NO' is not a 'REJECTION', but a 'REDIRECTION' to the best deserved answer...

Sometimes God upsets our plans,
to set up His own plans...
but God's plans are always perfect and infallible

What I was craving for was so very ephemeral...
It would have been a fatal mistake had my wish been granted
and I would have cried all my life...
I wasn't able to foresee that... but He was :))
When we start trusting His plans, we won't ever have to worry,
I trusted Him
And He granted me perpetual happiness...

He held my hand and I held onto His,
And now I am at peace :))


  1. Jo bhi hota hai, ache ke liye hota hai, Bhai (:-)
    I am very happy that yu have left everything behind and have moved on.

    There goes a beautiful saying - "Maybe God wants us to meet a few wrong people before meeting the right one so that when we finally meet the right person, we will know how to be grateful for that gift".

  2. Dekhna, Someday, someone will walk into yor life and will make yu realise why it never worked out with anyone else (:-)

  3. nice post...somewhere through the post I remembered "Footprints in the Sand" poster I read during my child hood days. It almost conveys the same message!!!

    Here is the link as well...I just googled it!!! :P

  4. @Varsha, :))

    @Pranav, I went through the link that u have given here, Even I had seen this poster about "Footrpints in the sand" long back, it's a fable in the Bible about God. But indeed, i can now say from my own personal experiences that even when we are going through a difficult phase, God never leaves us alone.. He always is walking alongside us and in a way, guiding us. And when that difficult period gets over, we come to realise that we have come out more stronger. It's God's way of teaching us a few lessons about life :)
