Everything I Need

A poem I have come to love...

Everything I Need

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 of patience and
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 prayers have all been answered.
