God Gave Me Nothing I Wanted

When I asked God for Strength, He gave me difficult situations to face;
When I asked God for Brain & Brawn, He gave me puzzles in life to solve;
When I asked God for Happiness, He showed me some unhappy people;
When I asked God for Wealth, He showed me how to work hard;
When I asked God for Favors, He showed me opportunities to work hard;
When I asked God for Peace, He showed me how to help others;
God gave me nothing I wanted, He gave me everything I needed.

– Swami Vivekananda

    If you have 1 wish in life to be granted, anything at all, and you won’t get another chance, WHAT DO YOU WANT?

    lizzam: ask for three more wishes and then ask for good health, happiness and three more wishes ad nauseam. :)
