“You can’t always get what you want. But if you try sometime, you just might find, you get what you need” – Rolling Stones

(God’s Sonnet by Timothy J. Verret; “it’s how I cope to hope in not getting what I want by any means necessary but rather getting what I need by God’s Means Necessary”)

You can’t see any limits to “I want.”

The world is your oyster, pearls before swine.

Who can live to die by the sword post-haunt?

By any means necessary for “mine?”

I have to see that there are limits here.

I can’t want it all. “You get what you need,”

Rolling Stones sing. The Bible says, “Endear

yours ears to Love, your mouth to speak not greed.”

“Not I speak of want; I speak of content.”

Philippians 4:Eleven – We’ve learned,

by any means necessary, torment

haunts us when we want what we have not earned.

“We want” is “we need”‘s true adversary.

We Love by any means necessary.


  1. There’s probably a reason, Dag, why it is your favorite song, right? My favorite song is Barbra Streisand’s PEOPLE and I know the line in that song, “People who need people are the luckiest people in the world,” is the Holy Spirit convicting me on, “yes, Timothy, you NEED people. I know you don’t think you do, but you do!” 😉
