Chaplain's Corner Minimize



A thought for you to reflect upon from our Troop Chaplain

“I asked God for strength that I might achieve.

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

I asked for health that I may do greater things.

I was given infirmity that I might do better things.

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 persons.

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

I asked for all things that enjoy life.

I was given life, that I may 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, among all people, am most richly blessed.”
