Confession of an unknown soldier


Then he said to them all: “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross daily and follow me. -Luke 9:23

***********

 

I asked God for strength that I might achieve.

I was made weak that I might learn to humbly to obey.

I asked God for health that I might do greater things.

I was given infirmity that I might learn compassion.

I asked for riches that I might be happy.

I was given poverty that I might be wise.

I asked for power that I might have the praise of men.

I was given weakness that I might feel the need of God.

I asked for all things that I might enjoy life.

I was given life that I might enjoy all things.

I got nothing that I asked for – But everything I had hoped for….

Almost despite myself, my unspoken prayers were answered

I am among all men most richly blessed.
