I asked for strength,
And God gave me difficulties to make me strong;
I asked for wisdom,
And God gave me problems to learn to solve;
I asked for prosperity,
And God gave me brain and brawn to work;
I asked for courage,
And God gave me dangers to overcome;
I asked for love,
And God gave me 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!
This poem was originally written by Swami Vivekananda, an atheist turned believer who later became a spiritual genius of commanding intellect and power, this poem that I posted is different version of that made by: I don't know who, sorry.
I hope this was helpful and inspirational for you as it was for me. :)
