Be Careful What You Pray For...

"I prayed for strength, that I could be strong;
I was made weak, that I could be more tender.

I prayed for health, that I could accomplish greatness;
I was given sickness, that I could do better things.

I prayed for wealth, so that I could be satisfied;
I was made poor, so that I could have wisdom.

I prayed for power, so that I could rule the world;
I was given brokenness, so that I would depend on God.

I prayed for many things, so that I could enjoy life;
I was given, “new life,” so that I could enjoy many things.

I didn’t get what I prayed for, but I got everything I longed for."
