What do i want?
I want some chocolate.
I want the kids to play their game without arguing and fighting.
I want my sick six-year-old son to be healthy again.
I want dinner to cook itself, and (if possible) wash the dishes and wipe the stove afterwards.
I want to get a full night’s sleep.
I want to see God in all things. I fear that I might be closer to what Ann describes as pantheism, worshipping the gifts. But I know what I need is to see His hand in the gifts and to worship Him for them.
I loved that Ann quoted Psalm 27.4, as that is a chapter that I’ve been trying to memorize (for about a year and a half!)
One thing I ask of the Lord, this is what I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to gaze upon the beauty of the Lord and to seek him in his temple.
Oh, I want that too! 🙂
I understand also about the daily manna. I need that, too! I need to keep my daily counting–because otherwise I will forget it. I want to remember him for His gifts every day.
