Day 19: What do you Want?

I had to laugh the other day

when I was in a coffee shop

and the chorus

"You can't always get what you want"

was playing.

I would say that to my children

when they wanted something,

but what they wanted

was something that wasn't the best for them.

It wasn't that mean, as I did say it in a nice way,

well actually I sang it, which was probably worse.

What do you want?

What do you really really want?

But what if

Just what if

you did get what you



and what you really really


was to be


Wanted to be Wanted

Wanted to be Loved

Wanted to be Heard

Wanted to Seen

Wanted to be You

The you~

with your talents and gifts

with your quirks and imperfections~



But what if

You can get what you always wanted


the One Who created you


you in the first place~

whether you like it or not.

You did not choose Me but I chose you, and appointed you that you would go and bear fruit,

and that your fruit would remain, so that

whatever you ask of the Father in My name He may give to you. John 15:16

So what more could you


Wanted to be Wanted

and that is

Who you are...Always.

From Rags to Riches
