    This isn't new & it certainly isn't original with me, but I believe it bears repeating:
    I asked God for strength that I might achieve.
    He made me weak that I might learn humbly to obey.
    I asked Him for health that I might do greater things.
    He gave me infirmity that I might do better things.
    I asked Him for riches that I might be happy.
    He gave me poverty that I might be wise.
    I asked Him for power that I might have the praise of men.
    He gave me weakness that I might feel the need of God.
    I asked for all things that I might enjoy life.
    He gave me life that I might enjoy all things.
    I got nothing that I asked Him for.
    He gave me everything that I hoped for.
    Almost despite myself, all of my prayers were answered.
    I am, among all men, most richly blessed!

    It's an original for me and I'm glad you posted it!

    Answers come in so many unexpected ways. It's pretty awe-inspiring to sit back and reflect on how our Father uses different methods to enrich our spiritual lives.

    Great post. Thanks for passing it along. I'd read it before but it's been a while ago.

    2 Corinthians 12:9

    9 And He has said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness " Most gladly, therefore, I will rather boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may dwell in me. ​

    Your experience certainly is Scriptural !!!!!
