  1. Dear Debbie,
    Thank you for posting this. I am glad you are keeping this up.
    I worship food and thinking about food when actually food does not give me happiness.
    I pray to God, recently I decided not to ask him anything and to just accept whatever he gives me. This has made me think that- what will my prayers contain if not my wishes that I want fulfilled from God. See how selfish I had become, most of my prayers were around what I wanted God to do for me as you describe in the reading above.
    Keep up the good work, Debbie,

    1. Susie,
      Thank you for your encouragement. But I want you and all other readers to know I did not write these devotions. When I posted this I was in a hurry and forgot to post the credit reference.

      Just to let you also know Susie, we all are guilty of praying for our needs and what concerns us. Isn’t God wonderful to be patient with us. He so understands how weak we and selfish we are. Isn’t it wonderful to know He still loves us anyway.
      May God grant you all the desires of your heart, my sister in Christ.

      1. All the time, in my case. As I grow older my greed and my needs grow and I want more- give me more, give me more. When I was younger, it was a case of ok God, I will do my part, you do your part thing. Now it is give me more, and more and more. And if he doesn’t answer my prayers in the way I want them answered, then the blame game starts. Why me Lord ? I am so good. Why me ?
        Can you believe it ?

        1. Yes, Susie I can believe it. I think we all do the same thing. But now that i’m 65, older, I dont want as many material things. I do want to pay off my debt, but I can’t blame God for my debt. I did that myself. I do want the love of my grandchildren. That’s high on the priority list. The highest thing I want is their salvation and for them not to repeat the same mistakes as all of us.
          I dream of a time when all my family is together enjoying a visit, eating a meal together. Do you know of that picture by Norman Rockwell of all the family sitting at a table eating their Thanksgiving meal? That is what I want. I want my family healed and restored. That is what I want. I don’t blame God, except why did He give them free will? Some people didn’t need free will. but I guess I didn’t need free will either. Ha Ha !
          Be well, my sister in Christ, Debbie
