I asked God for strength, and he gave me difficulties to make me strong.
I asked God for wisdom, and he gave me problems to solve.
I asked God for prosperity and God gave me the brain and brawn to work.
I asked God for courage, and God gave me danger to overcome.
I asked God for love, and God gave me troubled people to help.
I asked God for favors, and God gave me opportunities.
I received nothing I wanted.
I received everything I needed.
Isn't that the truth? God knows best.
God does not give us anything we cannot handle,
But God tests us to make us strong and to be instruments of
his love and peace.

  1. So true! We often don't get what we "want" when we ask God, because He knows best and He always provides what we "need." Lovely post :)
