My heavenly Father does not always do for me what I want in the short term. My wishes and wants multiply like rabbits, but are as ephemeral and fleeting as the passing wind. They are invariably selfish and short-sighted, and only on rare occasions for my eternal good. God the Father is not so much interested in my daily comfort as my eternal good. My doing without more often teaches me how to love more deeply what I already have. And in place of having Him always in attendance, physically by my side, I have, instead, the deeper Spiritual union which has come from His ultimate, painful sacrifice on my behalf.
