His goal is not to make you happy. His goal is to make you his. His goal is not to get you what you want; it is to get you what you need. – Max Lucado
When I first read this quote, I was so moved by it and I am still. God wants us to belong to him. How amazing is that! In doing so, we experience joy and peace. God wants to grow us up, challenge our way of thinking and behaving, to become less selfish and more selfless and grow more in Christ. Of course it’s not easy but in the long run it’s worth it.
