Do We Really Know?

This is the day that the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.      
                                             Psalm 118:2-4

Good Morning...It is certainly a beautiful day here in good ol' East Texas....I would prefer some cooler weather, but, it just so happens that I'm not the weather maker, and therefore, I have no control over it!

* * * * *

This is the time of year when we hear a lot of ....."I WANTS" .....
being spoken everywhere.....Maybe we should rename November to the month of "I Want"....and December to "I Really Want."

It would be......January, February, March, April, May, June, July, August, September, October,
I Want, I Really Want......

Sounds crazy doesn't it?  I'm being a little funny here, but honestly, those words of "I want" just ring out during this time of the year.
The list just keeps on growing and growing....

A list for God.....this is exactly what it is.....Ok Lord, I want this and I want that....I need this and I need that.

God loves each of us and it is His desire to give us His best.  He wants us to have things and He is a giving God. 
But......I am so thankful that He does not give us everything that we want.   God knows Best....He knows those things that WE long for, but yet are not good for us!  He protects us and He directs our paths....

The question here today is....."Do we really know what God wants?"
We need to get alone with God and take the time to listen to HIS wants.    I believe they are something like this...

Our Praise and Worship of Him
Our Attention
Our Love
Us following Him
Us making Him first in our lives

* * * *

We need to spend time with God and in doing so we will come to understand that He knows us better than we know ourselves....We need to let Him show us the things that He has destined for us and in doing so, our wants will become His wants....

Spend time with God today...

Sweet Blessings,

Thank-you for these words. I do know that God has a plan for my life,but it is often so hard to understand why He leads me in certain ways. I guess I don't need to understand,just trust.Have a wonderful day of blessings.

Did you take that beautiful first picture? Especially this time of the year, it is so hard to find time to BE STILL and listen to God, but this is something we need to do!! I am going on a three day computer vacation, I will be back on Thanksgiving. Hope you have a GREAT holiday, Shug, blessings to you and your family.

Nice post, Shug. I sometimes think we are getting to be "I want" people any time of year. Especially an "I want it right now".
Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving with your loved ones!
