    i asked for health that i might do greater things;
    i was given infirmity that i might do better things.
    i asked God for strength that i might achieve;
    i was made weak that i might learn to obey.
    i asked for riches that i might be happy;
    i was given poverty that i might be wise.
    i asked for power and the praise of men;
    i was given weakness to sense my need of God.
    i asked for all things that i might enjoy life;
    i was given life that i might enjoy all things.
    i got nothing i asked for but everything i hoped for;
    in spite of myself, my prayers were answered -
    i am among all most richly blessed.
    yes, God always gives us what's best for us.

    in Christ who i love with all my heart

    God always give us what we need, not necessarily what we want.

    Love, Mikie
