A lot of Christians assume that the things they want the most must be bad. We carry this guilt and think because I’m a big dirty sinner and because of total depravity, if I feel strongly about one option, I need to go the opposite direction. Getting over that mindset is part of getting yourself out of the way in prayer. You have to be open to the idea that this might be a desire God gave you, and what you want might be exactly what He wants.
