It’s a funny thing about wants, they can consume you. I think we often put our wants in the place that our needs should really go. I can personally attest to this. My engagement ended a little over a week ago. His choice not mine. I could fill this page with the things my broken heart wants. And those wants, well they feel like needs right now. It feels like if the universe doesn’t bend to my will in this one area I won’t survive it. But that’s the thing about wants, they are wants not needs. This time next year I won’t remember the urgency of these feelings. Wants evolve grow and change. They fade away and something new takes their place. Wants are based on the place we are in life and the circumstances that surround us. What I want today won’t be what I want next year, next month, next week or maybe even tomorrow. Wants are fluid and ever changing. Don’t confuse your wants, no matter how urgent they feel, with your needs. Remember, God always provides us with everything we need.
