Stumped

Yeah, I’ve been busy.  But school is over for the semester and I’m doing a local internship with my church, which means I get to stay in the area for the summer.  So this is sort of why it’s been so long since my last post.  Anyway…

I just went on a run and when I returned I spent sometime with Jesus, doing my devotions.  I read the passage in Matthew 20, where the blind men call out to Jesus and He asks them what they want.  All they ask for is their site.  The devotion I was reading discussed how they didn’t ask for a closer relationship with God or anything like that, nothing spiritual, just their site.  
If Jesus walked up to me in the flesh, right now, and asked me what I wanted, what would I say?  I honestly have no idea.  I mean, it’s Jesus! I would feel silly asking for earthly possessions.  I could ask for all of my debt to be paid off (school and such), but He already provides for me, how could I ask for more?  

Yes, there are things I want; a new car (mini cooper), a new camera, a new guitar, etc.  But really, these things won’t last forever, even if I do receive them.  They are only good for the short amount of time that I have left here on earth.  When Jesus returns, I’m not taking anything with me.  

So, if Jesus asked you what you wanted, what would you say?
