Maybe a little too honest

So, there's something I want, but it's one of those things I'm a little scared to ask God for.  You know the kind... you feel a little silly or childish, cause it's not a "need" need, but even still, it's a felt need.  Do you have anything like that?  What I want is far from wrong, in fact, it would be really good!

How far does God's promise to supply "all your needs" go?
How far does it reach beyond the basics... into the intangible?
What keeps me from just asking?
Is it the fear of disappointment?
Is it the silliness I feel?
Is it the pain of what's happened before?
Is it safer not to ask?
Is it safer not to risk it?
Maybe I don't think I deserve it.

This is probably one of those deep or raw postings that won't get any feedback.  That's okay.  I'd really like for God to build my faith on this one.  So, if you pray, would you pray for that?


  1. "Ask and it will be given to you." "Delight yourself in the Lord, and He will give you the desire of your heart." Praying for you, friend!

  2. I totally understand and no you're not alone;)I am praying for u and I know the feeling;)

  3. I think God looks at how your life would be if He answers "yes" and how it would be if He answers "no" and whichever path brings you closer to Him, that's the one He chooses. Either that, or He flips a coin. Who knows.

    You can always ask- He wants you to ask. It's not like He doesn't know you want it.
