I Asked and I Was Given

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 asked for a beautiful wife that would love me forever, I was given an angel from above to adore and cherish.


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