"What do you want to do?"
"I don't know... What do you want to do?"
"I don't know... I'm happy to do whatever you want to do. What do you want to do?"
"Whatever you want to do..."
etc and so on...
While waiting for my daughter to get out of school yesterday, I was planning to ask her what she wanted to do for the following couple of hours, and I knew we'd have a conversation much like the one above on asking her.
I know now my daughter will participate in such a conversation because she likes to please me... even though just deciding what she wants to do would please me more. :)
Pondering this, I planned to say, "I want you to want..." and as soon as I thought it, conviction grabbed my heart. :)
(Conviction is a good thing, by the way. It is not to be confused with condemnation or judgement. It is a doorway of truth which leads into greater freedom and peace.)
I suddenly knew that's what God's been trying to get me to see: He wants me to want.
I've felt a prompting by the Holy Spirit to write down things I want to stand in faith for, then mark them off when they come, but I've been hesitating to, all the while replying, "What do you want me to want? I want to want what you want. Holy Spirit, what should I stand in faith for...?" but yesterday I knew God, my Father, was saying, "Child, I want you to want..." and with it, He's saying, "Because I want to give it to you..." because just as I want to bless my child/ren, He wants to bless His. :)
What do you want...? What do you have the strength to stand in faith for...?
What door can you open today so Father can enter through and bless you? :)
