what I really want

I want a lot of things.

I want to be a writer. A photographer.

I want to go to college.

I want to be a wife and a mom.

I want to write books.

I want to make a lasting impact on people's lives.

I want to inspire and motivate people.

I want to encourage people.

But I've been thinking lately about the thing that I want most of all. And the thing I want most of all is to be a young woman (and a woman and an old woman as the years progress) after God's own heart. I want to be known as a great writer, a great photographer, a great wife, a great mom, a great encourager. But most of all I want to be known as a great woman of God like Mary, Ruth, and Esther. I want to spend time with God daily. I want to love Him with all that I am.

That is what I really want in this life.

Sure, I want a lot of other things, but if I'm not a woman after God's heart, nothing else will matter in the long run.

To be a young woman after God's own heart is what I really want. That's what matters most to me.

What about you?
