Be Careful What You Wish For!

Recently, when we were in Australia, our family stayed in this very nice hotel. They even upgraded us to a suite!

Now, when you get upgraded to a suite, it’s supposed to be SWEET. But somehow, I didn’t think it was what I wanted.

I REALLY wanted to stay at a different hotel that we couldn’t get into. I walked over to the other hotel, asked for a tour, and they showed me one of their upgraded rooms.

Sure, it was newer and more modern. But, it wasn’t nearly as BIG and wouldn’t have worked for our family.

For DAYS, I’d been feeling dissatisfied, thinking, “THIS is not what I want.” But, when I finally saw what I THOUGHT I wanted… I realized, that I HAD what I really needed, all along!

Most of the time, we don’t even know what’s best for us. We’re placed over here but we THINK we want to be over there. And we don’t understand why!

Be careful what you wish for. You might get what you want…but you might not want what you get! God is in Heaven saying, “Baby! I know what you want more than YOU know what you want. I wish you’d just trust Me with this.”

“My thoughts are nothing like your thoughts,” says the Lord. “And My ways are far beyond anything you could imagine.”

Isaiah 55:8 (NLT)

He’s the ALPHA and the OMEGA, the BEGINNING and the END! If we submit ourselves under the mighty Hand of God, in due time, He will exalt us and lift us up!


So, I’ll ask YOU. Do you know what you REALLY want?

Are you open to letting God direct it?

    I totally surrender and submit myself to God, letting him direct me and only his plans and thoughts for me will manifest.

    Thank you, that gave me a perspective of confidence. I like my job, but what I’m lacking on the financial front end, makes up for the free education that I am offered as an employee, which when completed will give me an opportunity to do what I love doing, “coaching”. I’m working on restarting my fitness business, the education will allow me to work with athletes on all levels and maybe a professional organization. God is good! God bless you.


    I know I want God to be in charge of every area of my life. He always supplies the best for ME! Thanks for the reminder

  4. Thank you so much. there are times I do not know what I want. I do want His will in my life. I am at a place where He says rest in your body and in Him. I have to fight to keep the rest. Thank for reminding me His ways are higher than mine. Be blessed You bless me so much thanks. Love ya MJ
