When I Asked God for Strength
He Gave Me Difficult Situations to Face
When I Asked God for Brain & Brown
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

  1. Jai sai ram !
    This is what i need to remind myself everyday. Thanks for putting it in words. My daughter is 9yrs old and I always tell her that if you have a problem go to God he will surely solve it. And when her favorable solution doesnt work she says mom God never helps. I shall make her read this maybe it answers her questions.
    Jai sai ram.

  2. Very True… Thanks !
