People seem to think embracing life means to jump off cliffs and kiss strangers. Maybe it’s just slowly learning to love yourself.
I asked for strength, and God gave me difficulties to make me strong.
I asked for wisdom, and He gave me problems to solve.
I asked for prosperity, and I was given a brain and energy to work.
I asked for courage, and God gave me danger to overcome.
I asked for love, and I was given troubled people to help.
I asked for favors, and God gave me opportunities
I received nothing I wanted, but everything I needed.
