before i get an onslaught of comments telling me all the reasons that i shouldn’t want my way all of the time. let me save you the headache and let you in on a little revelation i received:
There was a time that all i loved in this world was Tweety Bird. Yes, the yellow bird from the beloved show Looney Tunes. I thought that Tweety Bird was the shizzz and no one could ever convince me otherwise. I had like 4 night shirts that went to my knees that each had a speech bubble with a catchy phrase such as “i thought i saw a puddy tat” and so on. I wore these shirts every night until they were so fadded Tweety began to look old and cracked. If, by law, it would have been allowed for me to get a tatoo at the age of 10, i swear to you I would have gotten Tweety spinning a basketball on his right index finger put on my ankle. I am telling you I would have FOUGHT my parents to have this done.
I think we can all see where I am going with this….
I know that what I want is not always the best thing for me, otherwise I would be bankrupt and living in England somewhere wishing i would have listened to Dustin. What i really need is for my heart to want what God wants. For my heart to beat with His in every step of my life. Then I would find peace and satisfaction in every area instead of frustration and confusion. I have to realize that the things I want are not always good or even logical for that matter. They are as important as a Tweety Bird tattoo.
SO true. So true.
