The Lord is good to us, loving us and providing us with what we need. He protects us, He offers us His light, and He always does what is best for us.

This does not mean God always gives us what we want. Sometimes we ask for something we want: a job, a romance with someone, material goods, a solution to a problem. Sometimes our prayers seem unanswered and we do not receive these things. But do not despair; this does not mean God is not listening. He simply sees the big picture and He knows what it is we need

We must trust in our Lord. Sometimes the things we want do not truly serve us. Getting what we want at all times could mean we miss out on a truly great opportunity in the future. God knows this and we should trust that He will always do what is right for us.
