When I pray, sometimes I ask for things that I shouldn't have or that are for my convenience (instead of His glory). Sometimes, my prayers are answered in different ways than I expect, but it's in these moments that I realize how God's plan is so much better than my plan. This is a poem I didn't write, but I still love it oh so much.
I Asked God...
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 brain to work.
I asked for courage and God gave me dangers to overcome.
I asked for patience God placed 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 Prayer Has Been Answered.
