My Wish…

6 May

The sun is warm and bright. Life is simple and sweet. I spend my days thinking, dreaming, planning, wishing.

I’ve yet to experience setback, heartache, disappointment.

I close my eyes and make my wish.

I’m sure my Prince  Charming will arrive promptly to sweep me off  my feet and whisk me away to enjoy our happily ever after.

Fast forward a few years…

Things are slightly different now. I know that rejection is painful, what it’s like to have my heart broken, and that life isn’t exactly going according to my meticulously laid out plan.

I look ahead to a future uncertain with fear of never seeing my wish come true.

Another 5 years pass by and the scene is much different. Much has changed since the tear-filled nights of years prior.

The pain has been replaced by purpose. The heart once broken is mended. The plans I had so carefully laid have been turned completely around.

I have found that the Prince Charming I had so longed for had been close by all along. Carefully and lovingly refraining from granting the wish I so desired, in my way and in my time, He knew what was best.

But today, He has given something better (SO much better!) than anything I could’ve wished for.

 He has granted His wish for my life.

He spent years wishing I’d claim the abundant life He died to purchase.

He wished I would wait for Him to bless in His way and stop trying to go on my own.

He wished I’d realize how much He loved me!

Today, I live enjoying the blessings of His wish for my life!

  Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.

Psalm 16:11
