Not What We Want...But What We Need

i want patience...
God makes me wait.

i want peace...
God allows conflict--that i might work peace.

i want $ so i don't have to worry...
God says "trust Me and you don't have to worry"

i want obedient children...
God tells me to "teach them obedience by being obedient to Me"

i want fulfillment...
God says "give to others"

i want a beautiful wife...
God said "ok...i'll give you that one"--don't take her for granted.

i want an exciting life...
God says "follow Me".

i love it that i ask for what i want...
But that God gives me what i need.
