Soul Sunday

  Something to think about.

How often do we pray only to be confused, disappointed or upset when we feel our prayers have not been answered. Sometimes even losing faith or questioning our beliefs.  But what if they are answered. Answered in ways we might not understand but that are best for us, for those around us and for those we may not even know.  

Maybe you have seen this before, maybe not but it's a good reminder that sometimes prayers are answered just not always in the way people expect, want or wish.

I asked for strength...        

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 for 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.
