From Today's Liturgy
In light of St Paul asking God to take away his flaw, but finding God helping him deal with it, this anonymous reflection is relevant:

I asked for strength and God gave me difficulties to make me strong.
I asked for wisdom and God gave me problems to solve.
I asked for prosperity and God gave me brain and brawn to work.
I asked for courage and God gave me dangers to overcome.
I asked for love and God gave me troubled people to help.
I asked for favours and God gave me opportunities.
I received nothing I wanted but everything I needed.

Sincere Thanks
