You asked for strength

You asked for strength.
What you got was hardship to endure
To become strong.
You asked for wisdom.
What you got were problems to solve
To become wise.
You asked for love.
What you got were people to care for
To become love.
You asked for guidance.
What you got were opportunities to choose between
To become a guide.
You asked for success.
What you got were talents to use
To become more of you.
You asked for peace.
What you got were wounds to heal
To walk in peace.
