When Wants Influence Our Actions

I want what I want WHEN I want it….

Perhaps it’s different for you, but I can’t tell you how many times this thought has sparked reactions that led to actions with bad outcomes from my hurried and poorly thought out decisions. 

I get it, the self-willed human in me wants to override my spiritual nature and get that perceived TEMPORARY GAIN. 

It’s in those moments my self-will blocks me from seeing the long-term outcomes and the effects on my hasty wants and desires. 

When I quiet those urges through prayer, counsel with others wiser than me, and in trusting my faith, that I wait and let God provide me with the natural choice. 

More often than not, I am amazed because it turns out way better than I ever expected! 

Check your experience….

Lord, please let me learn to pray to want what I get instead of getting what I want, AMEN.

Have a blessed day Y’all!
