Once there was a boy who asked God for a flower and a butterfly.

But instead God gave him a cactus and a caterpillar.

Suatu ketika seorang lelaki memohon kepada Tuhan sekuntum bunga dan seekor kupu-kupu.

Namun Tuhan malah memberinya sebonggol kaktus dan seekor ulat.

The boy was sad, he didn’t understand why his request was mistaken. Then he thought “Oh well, God has too many people to care for,” and decided not to question. After some time, the boy went to check up on his request that he had left forgotten.

Alangkah sedihnya lelaki itu, ia tak mengerti kenapa permintaannya dijawab secara keliru. Dia berpikir : “Oh, Tuhan punya banyak tugas, mengurus banyak orang lain ...” dan dia memutuskan tak mempertanyakan lebih jauh. Setelah beberapa waktu, si lelaki itu memeriksa kembali pemberian yang telah lama diabaikannya.

To his surprise, from the thorny and ugly cactus a beautiful flower had grown. And the unsightly caterpillar had been transformed into the most beautiful butterfly!

Betapa kagetnya dia, menemukan bahwa dari sebonggol tanaman kaktus berduri dan jelek itu sudah tumbuh sekuntum bunga yang elok. Dan ulat yang menjijikan itu telah berubah menjadi seekor kupu-kupu yang sangat cantik!

God always does things right, even if to us it seems all wrong. If you asked God for one thing and received another, trust. You can be sure that He will always give you what you need at the appropriate time. Tuhan selalu melakukan semuanya dengan baik dan benar ! Jika anda mohon sesuatu kepada Tuhan dan ternyata menerima yang berbeda, percayalah. Yakinlah bahwa Dia akan selalu memberikan kebutuhanmu pada saat yang tepat.
