Black and Gold Boxes

One minute reading, this is an inspirational story..
By: Author Unknown, Source Unknown

I have in my hands two boxes. Which God gave me to hold.
He said, “Put all your sorrows in the black, And all your joys in the gold.”

I heeded his words, and in the two boxes. Both my joys and sorrows I store
But though the gold became heavier each day
The black was as light as before.

With curiosity, I opened the black. I wanted to find out why
And I saw, in the base of the box, a hole, Which my sorrows had fallen out by.

I showed the hole to God, and mused aloud, “I wonder where my sorrows could be.”
He smiled a gentle smile at me. “My child, they’re all here with me.”

I asked, “God, why give me the boxes,
“Why the gold, and the black with the hole?”

“My child, the gold is for you to count your blessings,
the black is for you to let go.

Ada di tanganku dua buah kotak yang telah Tuhan berikan padaku untuk dijaga. Tuhan berkata: “Masukkan semua penderitaanmu ke dalam kotak yang berwarna hitam dan masukkan semua kebahagiaanmu ke dalam kotak yang berwarna emas”

Aku melakukan apa yang Tuhan katakan. Kusimpan kebahagiaan dan penderitaanku.

Anehnya, setiap hari kotak berwarna emas semakin bertambah berat sedangkan kotak berwarna hitam tetap ringan seperti semula.

Dengan penasaran aku buka kotak berwarna hitam dan menemukan bahwa ada lubang di dasar kotak hitam itu, dimana semua penderitaanku semua jatuh keluar.

Aku tunjukkan lubang itu kepada Tuhan dan bertanya “Kemanakah perginya semua penderitaanku?”

Tuhan tersenyum hangat padaku “Hamba-Ku, semua penderitaanmu ada padaKu”

Aku bertanya “Tuhan, mengapa memberiku dua kotak, kotak emas dan kotak hitam yang berlubang?”

“Hamba-Ku, kotak emas kuberikan agar kau senantiasa menghitung rahmat yang Aku berikan kepadamu. kotak hitam kuberikan agar kau melupakan penderitaanMu”
