What you want
All in for the One Who is All in for you
At times I have wanted many things. I have wanted to be seen "as smart" I have wanted to be seen " as right" I have wanted to be "wanted" by others, I have wanted to be seen "as important", I have wanted to be seen "as nice" I have wanted to be seen "as religious" I have wanted "attention." I have wanted "a job". I have wanted to be married (family), I have wanted to own things.
If you are struggling in life it may be because you are wanting something God does not want.
It is more important to take action to remove what is hurting you than it is to take action on just about anything else.
You only need to want what you only need to want. IF you want something you do not need to want, wanting what you do not need to want can be counterproductive. There is not a lot of point in wanting something that does not actually exist as you will never have it.
Job 15:31 Let him not deceive himself by trusting what is worthless, for he will get nothing in return.
Psalm 4:2 How long will you people turn my glory into shame? How long will you love delusions and seek false gods?
God, Whoever HE Is has only and will ever only want nothing more than you. If you want something more than you want God, you are misrepresenting God. It is my belief that if you know how much God wants you, you in turn will be more inclined to want Him. I believe if there is nothing you want more than you want God, you will be more able to allow you to be more accepting of what He has already done.
If you have wanted something more than you have wanted God, God does not want to condemn you. He wants to help you turn back to wanting nothing more than Him and in turn others of you just as He wants nothing more than you and in turn others of you. .

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures; He leadeth me beside the still waters.
He restoreth my soul; He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for His name’s sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; for Thou art with me; Thy rod and Thy staff, they comfort me.
Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies; Thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life; and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.
