Have you ever wanted to ask God if there's a point to the pain?

     There you are, comfortable as can be, minding your own business, reading a book, and daydreaming about a peanut butter and raspberry jam sandwich. Suddenly God shows up and tells you He wants to give you something.
    You know from personal experience that God's gifts are kind of tricky to handle and His plans for you seldom work out the way you expect. And yet, God is good. 

     So what do you do? Stay put? Go with Him? Run screaming for the hills? It doesn't matter. He is God. He knows what you need, He knows where you live, and He knows how to give gifts like no one else.
