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.
