Lillie was a fish who loved to play.
She especially loved to play hide-and-seek.
One day as she was playing, she met a new friend named Willie, who happened to be a turtle.
She was very curious as to why Willie had a house on his back.
Willie told Lillie that God made him that way as a way to protect him.
Lillie thought it must be cool to have a house on top of you, so she knelt down to pray to God to see if he could make her with a house over her.
Everyday she waited about whether she would get a house like Willie, and every day that went by, she heard no answer from God.
Lillie thought to herself, God must not love me because he didn't answer my prayer.
So she decided that she must not be worthy enough for God to listen to and grant her wish, so she thought she would give up on God until one day she asked Willie why God wouldn't answer her prayer and give her a house like he had.
Willie explained to her that God did answer her prayer, he just chose to answer in a way she didn't expect.
He told her that she was a fish and that she wasn't meant for a house on her back like he was meant to have.
Lillie understood and repented to God for her behavior and asked him for her forgiveness for giving up on him.
Now Lillie and Willie play everyday in the water whenever Willie comes to see her.
