Waiting · Want

what i want…

What I want… are my flesh and spirit to agree…

But that is just not going to happen…

For the desires of the flesh are against the Spirit, and the desires of the Spirit are against the flesh, for these are opposed to each other…

Galatians 5:17 ESV

What I want… is to do His will…

What I want is to stop feeling like I don’t get to do what I want…

For I do not understand my own actions. For I do not do what I want, but I do the very thing I hate.

Romans 7:15 ESV

What I want is not yet…

But He promises it will be…

So will it be with the resurrection of the dead. The body that is sown is perishable, it is raised imperishable; it is sown in dishonor, it is raised in glory; it is sown in weakness it is raised in power; it is sown a natural body, it is raised a spiritual body.

1Corinthians 15:42-44 NIV

What I want… is to be patient… content… gracious… in the waiting…

Lord… that I would die to self… and live to You…
