I have been doing a lot of “I wish” lately.
Things that I wish were different. In my small world and in the world at large and in my heart.
I wish that I could worship with complete abandonment…and complete desperation for God to move. I have seen it. and I want it. I seem to always hold a piece of myself back.
I wish that children weren’t thought to be like disposable cups—casually tossed aside and not cherished and loved.
I wish that compassion and needs made decisions in church or other organizations. not policies. (because you know, I don’t think Jesus checked in with temple policies when He decided to do His thing.)
I wish that I took more time to sit and play or just enjoy the moment. I can get so busy doing so much stuff that I forget to do that.
I wish that there was so much less heartache in the lives around me.
I wish each person was thought to be important based on the fact that they were created in God’s image.
I wish that people’s actions followed their talk.
I wish that I had all the funds I needed to give to all the things that touch/break my heart.
I wish that I judged less and loved more.
I wish that it was much quicker and cheaper to get back to Africa. :)
How about you?
What’s your wish?
