When I Asked God…

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
– Swami Vivekananda

    Nice poem.
    In the second stanza of the poem, I guess it should be
    ‘Brains and Brawn’ instead of ‘brain and brown’. Kindly forgive me if it’s my mistake as I could not make out the meaning of that particular phrase.
