I saw this quote somewhere, and I knew upon reading it that I needed to share it. It is so beautiful and deep and thought-provoking.- I love it!
“I asked for strength, and God gave me difficulties to make me strong.
I asked for wisdom, and God gave me problems to solve.
I asked for prosperity, and God gave me brawn and brains to work.
I asked for courage, and God gave me dangers to overcome.
I asked for patience, and God put me in situations where I was forced to wait.
I asked for love, and God gave me troubled people to help.
I asked for favors, and God gave me opportunities.
I received nothing I wanted.
I received everything I needed.
My prayers have all been answered.”
