I Want You


Father in Heaven, You breathed another day into life. And I take part in it as I recognize Your presence. Today, I make it about You. Take my heart and make it Yours. Make it Your home to do as You please. I am pleased with the change You bring about in me and I can’t help but acknowledge You’ve been guiding me all along. I want to thank You for that. I want You to do great things today as You had yesterday, and I want You to keep my eyes open to those great things, so that I can thank You and praise You right away, so that my heart recognizes again who made these things possible. I want to take those blessings You give me to bless others along the way. I want many things my Lord, but I know without a doubt as long as I focus on You, You show me and give me greater things I thought I was never worthy of. I want You to help me keep my eyes on You as I am willing to follow. I pray this in Your name, Amen.

Matthew 6:33 But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.

By His Grace, Sheela

  1. What a beautiful prayer and post. The cartoon is funny and too true! I can see you truly have a tender heart after God, Sheela. And your prayer is being answered too. For you are that conduit of blessing because you have learned how to receive Love. That is a very precious thing indeed. Many never find that or even know that they should desire it, as the cartoon points out. You have something wonderful to give. I can also see you touching a lot of people who are unloved and hurting with the Father’s love. Blessings to you. Thanks for sharing your gift. 🙂


    • Pastor Mel, that was the most heartfelt comment anyone has ever given me. I am smiling from temple to temple. Haha! I wish WordPress had a “Favorites” button so I can just easily find your blog. I don’t have much time to read today, but I can tell your posts are ones that will definitely get my attention as my attention is pretty hard to keep! Thank you for stopping by and following. 😀 Expect me to be a regular commenter on your blog and may God bless you exceedingly!!


      • You’re very welcome. I try to see people with heaven’s eyes, and that’s how the Lord sees you. You make Him smile too! And I get to be the messenger. And your heart blesses me too. 🙂

        On blog favorites, the best way I found to follow a blog is with the WordPress Reader at http://www.wordpress.com. There’s a category “Blogs I Follow” that will scroll all your follows. I think the page defaults to that if you are signed in. If not, there is a sign-in form on the page. I also have the WordPress app on my Android phone that does the same thing, which is how I saw your comment here. Otherwise, like you said, it’s hard to keep up, especially, if you have a crazy schedule like mine.

        I look forward to future conversations with you. Remember, you are loved. 🙂


    • You’ve just expressed what’s been in my heart lately. The older I’m getting, the more I desire God and not so much of this world…high five! May He bless you exceedingly! Hugs and kisses, Sheela 🙂 🙂


  2. This morning as I laced my clown shoes…you read that right…I am a clown in children’s church…but back to my shoes. As I tied rabbit ears with my shoe laces, a big list of what I needed to do today raced and hopped through my mind. Then I read this post and I realized I needed to replace the list with “God, what do you want me to do today?” It was big epiphany on a Sunday morning for a clown (or anyone). Thanks for the post.
