A famous anonymous prayer written by a Confederate Soldier in the Civil War

I asked God for strength that I might achieve, I was made weak, that I might learn to humbly 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 for God.

I asked for all things, that I 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, most richly blessed.

God knows what is best for us.  He is never in a hurry and does not have deadlines.  Our God is a HUGE God:  bigger than any problem, sorrow, or hardship.  Go to Him and humbly receive His grace, mercy and love.
