We Want!!

Quote 4 2day title logo Blog

We want to be saints, but we also want to feel every sensation experienced by sinners; we want to be innocent and pure, but we also want to be experienced and taste all of life; we want to serve the poor and have a simple lifestyle, but we also want all the comforts of the rich; we want to have the depth afforded by solitude, but we also do not want to miss anything; we want to pray, but we also want to watch television, read, talk to friends, and go out. ~Β Ronald Rolheiser

  1. So true we want it all don’t we? Nice quote and definitely thought provoking!

  2. Glad I am not alone in these confliciting desires and wants!!! Usually attack myself in self-condemnation for wanting all the wrong things.

    • Please don’t attack or condemn yourself, there is no more condemnation in Christ and we all fall short when dealing with the desires of the flesh!
      God created desire, but its so hard not to be decieved when the world is bombarding all of our senses with wrong things.
      So take comfort that your not on your own in this, we are in this together! Its great to see you here, and thanks for leaving this honest comment. πŸ™‚
      God bless you.

      • Thank you for your loving comment in response to my guilt-filled one. It is not the first time God has spoken through you to me. I treasure your message and love your quotes for the day. They always seem to be relevant.

        • Awwww to think God can use me to speak to you blows my mind.
          I pray before all of my posts to ask for guidance on what to post, so i’m really glad that they seem to be relevant! πŸ˜€
          Thanks so much for taking precious time to read my posts and visit my blog to leave such lovely comments. It means so much to me to have a loving sister like you to share my journey with!
          Have a blessed weekend! πŸ™‚

          • Thanks to you, loving brother. I lost my blood brother two years ago this Monday. So that you would call me sister touches me deeply.
            Blessings to you always!

            • Awww so sorry to hear about your loss, you are so amazing and i’m blessed to be able to call you sister!
              My prayers are with you! God bless. πŸ™‚
