    Despite the fact that what ever God give us at any point in life is the best thing we should have at that time, we are still full of wishes. I wish God can me a father of two now. What do you wish God to give now?

    I experienced a bit of a downfall in my relationship with Jesus Christ - didn't make it my daily first priority. So, I prayed and ask God to please talk to me again... I needed to see His 'realness' again. He talked in the most abundantly way possible:

    Two weeks later me and my husband were pregnant with our second child.

    Jesus gave me way more than I asked for!

    I wish that God would grant me good health and a great mind to conquer a lot of things in this lifetime. That way I can achieve everything I have planned all this while and help my community one person at a time.

    I think the proper question would be if what God wants from us, not what we want from God. This is because I strongly believe that everything that happens in our lives has a reason. We are here in this world for a reason, and that mission He has given us, we have to fulfill in order to achieve our purpose in this world.

    Of course I pray to God for a lot of things, health and prosperity among others. Despite that, what I really pray is for me to be the person He wants me to be, or He has planned me to be. After all the crap I had gone through in life, I realized all the things that has happened, is happening or will be happening to me, are essential for the kind of person that I should be.

    What I'm really pointing out is that as a Christian, if I live the way Jesus want me to, act, live, speak, and think the way a Christian should, He will give me all my needs. They may not necessarily be what I want, because I have come to realize that it's not all the time that what we want is also what wee need. There are also a lot of time when we believe what's best for us, isn't really it. I have long submitted my fears and worries to Him as I am but an imperfect human being, and Him as our God and embodiment of perfection and peace. He knows what I need to be and what I should be. What I can only do is give my 100% for me to be able to at least show Him that I am worthy of His blessings.

    I don't want anything from God now, giving a chance to live in this wonderful world is enough for me. When God created the world everything has a purpose from plants, animals, air, sea etc., it is for you to find your destiny. I always keep on praying for a good health and help me make right decisions in life for me to know my purpose and perform my task each day. I may not be rich but I have a complete and happy family, I always thank God for all the blessings that he gave me whether it is small or big. Learn how to appreciate and everything could turn into a blessing.

    It is said that "Ask and it shall be given unto you.....seek and you shall find" this quote inspires me most since anything you ask from God you have an assurance that it shall be given unto you so long as you are patient and do believe that the Creator will fulfil your wish.

    What I humbly can request from God is to give me wisdom on how to handle different occurrences of life and different people so as to live in peace and harmony.I do believe that He will one day grant me the wisdom since even Solomon requested for wisdom and He did grant him his wish.

    WHAT DID I WANT FROM GOD?
    There are many things that I wanted from God but I am going to talk about the three cardinal gifts that I ever wanted from God.
    1) Eternal Life.
    This is the life of God that makes who He is, which is more than life without an end. It's a life of glory, light, beauty, dominion, and control, in the Bible it is written that God is love and therefore His life is a life of love.
    2)The Holy Spirit.
    He is a person and not a thing or a dove, he talks, feels and expresses emotions. He is the power of God, He is the same that made Jesus, the Christ. Before then, Jesus could not perform any miracle, but it was after He received the Spirit. Jesus called Him the dower of the Works of God. He also answers the name of Jesus because He is the same person; (the word of God and the Spirit of God). With the Holy Spirit, I became more than a man, I could heal the sick and raise dead situations with words because He anointed my words to become life-giving words. For one to be called a Christian, he or she must receive the Holy Spirit to live in, hence fulfill the scripture that says "Christ in me the hope of glory,"
    3) Righteousness.
    This is an amazing gift from God. It is the nature of God to always be right because what he says becomes, so if God was to tell a lie then His lie becomes the truth. Righteousness as related to us is in two categories.
    a) Legal righteousness.
    b) Vital righteousness
    LEGAL RIGHTEOUSNESS. Legally, now that I am born again, I received this very nature of always being right. So in the eyes of justice of God, I am blameless. I no longer function with my own righteousness but I receive His own. This scripture that says," their sins and iniquity will I remember no more," is now in operation. It is the law of the Spirit of life in Christ that has set me free from the law of sin and death.
    VITAL RIGHTEOUSNESS. Apart from receiving Gods' righteousness, I was made the righteousness of God in Christ. That means I am the expression of the nature of His Godliness. This is very big for a religious mind to comprehend but it is the truth of the spiritual matters. In addition to many other things, these are the three cardinal gifts that I wanted from God, as a result, I shifted from religion to Christianity, because Christianity is not a religion but the divine life of God in a human person.

    Firstly you have to believe that God is going to grant you whatever wish you may request from Him. Am saying so since in you title it states otherwise, "WHAT DID I WANT FROM GOD?" kindly allow me to say that by that it meant that the above incidents either God already fulfilled in your life or not yet happened but you had requested on them earlier.

    My thread is just asking for the things you may want God to do for you and you are persistent about them even though your wish have not yet been fulfilled.

    One thing I have always desired from God is for my parents to remain alive and healthy for me to wipe those tears from their eyes.

    My parents has always been there for us. They didn't go to college neither were they able to have the education they wanted but yet, they were able to train four children through college all from their meagre salary. I wouldn't want anything more from this life than for the both of them to stay alive to enjoy the fruits of their labour.

    I believe God gives us whatever we ask from him unconditionally. For me I don't wish, I ask because God has given us the power to ask anything we want from him through prayers. Prayer is the only tool we have to speak to God for he is our father and a father give his children whatever they ask of him. I ask of spiritual fulfillment.

    When I believed in God I wanted a family and happiness and a future and success. Now that I don't believe in God I want the same things. But there is something that I can be and feel now that I couldn't when I believed in God and that is content and also having a knowledge that even if you believe some things just won't happend. Accepting those things makes life easier and also knowing where my limit is and those things didn't happend until I stopped believing.

    For me my journey trying to believe in something proved to not work. Things work out much better as a non-believer for me which just proves that what is good for someone might not be for someone else.

    I also know that my understanding of the world has grown not having to abide to certain "claimed truths" and accept myself to just believe what is actually true instead of what someone tells you is true.

    My favorite activity is going to the beach and swimming a lot. After that, my favorite part is to relax on the beach, enjoy the beautiful air, read a boo , in the evening attend a loud party and dance to a late hour. Unfortunately, this only happens in the summer.
