I wish for no more wishes

I wish I could read all day.

I wish I could read and write all day, every day.

I wish I could read and write all day, every day, and not be interrupted.

If I could read and write all day, every day, without interruptions, I’d wish I had someone feeding me grapes… I love grapes… and foot rubs.

I wish I could read and write all day, every day, with no interruptions, eating grapes, while having my feet rubbed.

But then, think of all I’d miss:

  • Hugs from my daughter
  • All the funny little things my son does and says
  • Tender moments with my husband
  • Fun times with friends
  • Chance encounters with strangers
  • Opportunities to grow, learn, share, and give
  • And just about everything that makes life worth living

I’m so thankful that God gives us the desires of our heart and not every little wish that pops in our head.

Take delight in the Lord, and He will give you the desires of your heart Psalm 37:4

When our desire is to know Him, we wish for less and appreciate more. If He were to take back everything He has blessed us with, He would still remain… and that would be enough.

What are some of the things you would miss if God granted every little wish?

Praying for a thankful heart this week.

  1. So true! if God had granted my wishes, I may not be here serving along side you! I’m so thankful for the wishes that weren’t granted.

  2. Sometimes I wish I no longer had pain but than I realize that in my weakness He draws me closer to Him. My desire to be closer to Him far outweighs my desire to, say. . . ride a bike. Sometimes I think it is easier to have faith in God because through my pain I was given an amazing awareness of Him. It’s clear to me every single day when I accomplish even the smallest task, that God did it, he got me through. I don’t need to struggle to see God’s hand in my life. In reality, that’s an amazing gift.

    • Sheila, you really are an amazing woman of faith. God is using your story and struggle and will continue to. Thanks for being so honest. love you and am praying for you.
