But I wanted comfort. I wanted to love God and to live a life where there was simple peace. However, my understand of peace is nothing like that of God. Peace for me was the removal of obstacles. Of hurt. Of pain. Of suffering.

I wanted a world of my own making.

Yet this is not what God has offered us. Promised us. He has offered us a cross. Suffering. Struggle. Rejection. But this is nothing more than He himself has taken on for us. He offered us His path.

And His path leads to Paradise.
