What if you don’t get what you want?

I just felt I need to share this:
The easiest way to frustration in the Christian faith, is coming to God primarily as a means to receive a material thing,  fame, husband, wife, money etc…the truth is that you  may get these things in God but many times it doesn’t work that way! Some prayers God will answer some he will not! #truth some will take time to be realised. But either way if you completely surrender to God and come to him as a broken person knowing that only him can satisfy your desires, needs etc….regardless of where you are in life, economically, geographical location. Giving our lives to God knowing that his salvation surpasses all material things will give us a strong root and anchor in this very challenging life…life is very tough,  but when we genuinely give it to him, our weakness he will turn into strength. I have Iived on both extremes, abject poverty to where I can open the doors to my house everyday, have a family and afford the things I only dreamt about….but even as I see doors continue to open in my life, enjoying my wife and kids, helping the poor and destitute,  running a school, a couple of businesses….I am at a point that even if I lost all these things including my family who I Iove so much! My anchor and trust is in God and God alone….I trusted him when I had nothing, now what I have should never come in the way or the absence of these and more, should never make me doubt and forsake my faith and most importantly the salvation I freely received from Christ on that cross. I hope you are encouraged and can put your trust in him too, whether things are good or bad, ugly or unbearable. Please read Matthew 6:33.
Have a blessed week.
