Last night I asked God “Why do you have to create pain and hurt?
Why not all laughters and cheers, without any of the pain from my tears?
Why do we have to cry?
Why not all smile all of the time?”
He took my hand and said, “My child, you don’t have time to thank me when you’re happy.
Sometimes I let you experience pain for you to recognize me.
Remember its the times of the worst possible pains I’m making you a fighter, the more you cry, the more you’re hurt, the stronger you become!”
I smiled and then God added “…always remember that whatever happens, everything has a purpose.
I always give a rainbow after the rain and regardless of what you might think I am holding your hand in every storm you face,
all you must do is have a little faith”
