My Wish

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?

  1. I love you Charisa! I love your heart. I think I have a wish list that looks a lot like yours! I can't wait to spend hours talking about our heart's desires! I go back and forth between being frustrated and thankful that God created me with all of these feelings!!
