I asked for strength
He gave me trials to make me strong
I asked for wisdom
He gave me problems to solve
I asked for peace
He gave me conflicts to settle
I asked for answers
He asked me questions
I asked for joy
He showed me His Creation
I asked for love
He opened His arms
I asked for forgiveness
He gave me His Son
I hear people say all the time "God didn't answer my prayers!!!"

Well, he probably did, it just wasn't the answer you wanted. God doesn't give us what we want, He gives us what we need.

Yeah, faving without commenting sucks. Don't do it. You comment, I'll send love. Constructive criticism especially appreciated.

I love this, this is so true! And I know, I hear people say that all the time and I've never been able to answer for some reason, but thank you for giving me something to tell them. (Maybe God himself pointed this to me haha!)

I don't know what to say, so I'm saying this. I'd rather not say anything, and just fave the darn thing, but you want comments, so I'm giving this somewhat worthless comment.
