Want vs Need

In one of our conversations, a friend reminded me- “pray that God will give you what you need and not what you want.”

So true!! We keep asking Him for so many things. But sometimes it’s just not what we need -probably at that point in time or sometimes never! He knows what we need so well and He will provide it. So next time you ask and do not receive, don’t be dejected. You don’t need it now. If you need it and when it is the right time, your prayer will be answered. Thank God for being such a wise father!


Nothing but a recipient of Christ's grace. I am a young doctor and I use this space to find meaning in the bedlam of my thoughts. My blog might resonate with the screams of a young adult finding her place in life, the stench of hospital corridors, images of the many people who intrigue me and the lessons my Saviour Jesus teaches me.
