The Only Thing

I stand in amazement and wonder, what good thing did I do that pleased the Almighty and caused him to bless me so? I have reached the conclusion that the only thing I could have done to merit all this is that even in the most difficult times I never once had a complaint against the Creator. Rather, with every wave that passed over me, threatening to drown me, I bowed my head and accepted it with love.
