I Did Not Get What I Prayed For, But….

I asked GOD for strength, that I might achieve
I was made weak, that I might learn humbly to obey.
I asked for health, that I might do greater things
I was given infirmity, that I might do better things.
I asked for riches, that I might be happy
I was given poverty, that I might be wise.
I asked for power, that I might have the praise of men
I was given weakness, that I might feel the need of GOD.
I asked for all things , that I might enjoy life
I was given life,that I might enjoy all things.
I got nothing I asked for —–
But everything I had hoped for.
Almost despite myself, my unspoken prayers were
Answered
I am among all people, most richly blessed.
