I asked

Filed under: Unrelated — Celia @ 10:37 pm

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 might enjoy life
I was given life, that I might enjoy all things…

I got nothing that I asked for – but everything I had hoped for.
Almost despite myself, my unspoken prayers were answered.
I am, among all men, most richly blessed!
