Why do You want it

God sometimes I don’t want to go through with what You want
Because I don’t think it will work out
And I don’t think it will happen 
I just don’t think it will take place
There are so many obstacles and I can’t see how
It can
And I don’t think I want it
Because I don’t want to put up with all these upsetting instances
I don’t know God
I have a second thought
I don’t think I want it for the duration
I don’t think I can do it
I don’t think it is the way I thought it would be
It’s not how I visualize it
It’s not the way I want it to be
It’s not the way I thought it should be
It’s not how I wanted it
It’s not how I want it
And I don’t think I can handle it –the upsetting emotions
I don’t want to waste my emotions God
On something that I know it’s too much trouble
I don’t know if I want to go through it
I don’t know if I want to commit my feelings 
There - You have it
Why do You want it God?

    What we see as impossible is not difficult for an all Powerful God. I find it amazing that he wants us to participate and for some reason we don't want to. Another thought provoking poem. Thanks

    Because God is the only answer to problems. If you know that God is everything in your life; then, give Him everything in your life. Faith will help to handle it, believe it, go through it and thought about Him always. Good work, More of it.

    He will do whatever it takes to get what He wants. I can't do what He does not want me to do. Thanks, Alfred. Love ya, Toquyen
