Yesterday I wrote on my Facebook status: “Sometimes you want what you want but it’s not exactly what you need.
God knows what you need and is willing to supply. Sit tight because He has it all!”
This week plus the weekend has been a trying time for me. (Yeh, I know, it’s ONLY Tuesday!) I usually write about things that I have gone through and the lessons learned, but today, I really can’t say that I’ve gone through this. Yes, I’m coming out, but seemingly stuck right smack dab in the middle.
There’s a transition taking place and I feel super uncomfortable. I feel as though God has something great in store, but when will it come? At times, I feel like I’m standing in my own way blocking my blessings, while other times I’m wondering if it’s even for me to have. I guess right now the lesson is simply learning needs from wants.
I think we always crave and desire things that aren’t necessarily good for us, from personal to professional lives all the time, which is a good thing in the end. God has everything you need, but is protecting you from your selfish wants. Anyone can say, “I want 10million dollars”, but the question is, do you really need it? What will you do with it? Will you have the same mentality you did before you got it? Spend, spend, spend, without any investments?
Now, time for me to open up my eyes and see what’s really a want versus a need. Assessment time!
