Many orators and motivational speakers and some popular ministers tell us repeatedly that God wants us to have everything and to be happy and fulfilled, and although this sells a lot of DVDs and books, it is only partly true. God cannot give us what we are not able to see and accept. We will not see it; we will pass it by, sabotage it, and ill-wish it.
Until we are ready to accept that we can be happy and fulfilled, impassioned and energized, we will not believe that there is a God who wishes it so. I know this to be true from all the years of being a scientific study myself.
