I really want God to give me everything. I don’t want to try. I don’t want to struggle. I want everything made easy for me. Give me, Lord. Give me!
In prayer the other day God showed me that all I do is request that He strengthen me the way I want Him to do it. What’s wrong with that? First off, that doesn’t show true submission on my part. Secondly, the problem is that when He gives me a situation to grow from, I just want Him to make it go away.
I don’t want to open up and get close to people because I’m afraid I’ll experience loss. I want to be a light, but I don’t want to be in dark places. I want it, but I don’t want to go through what it takes to get it.
I want God to give me the faith without me having to go through a time when I need to exercise it. Give me the comfort without me having to be tested. Give me the tools I need without actually having to practice using them. In other words, give me the success story without the story part God.
