Commentary on the Gospel of
When was the last time you asked God for something that your heart madly desires? At times we refuse to ask God for the wrong reason. First, we feel we don’t deserve what we ask; second, we feel so impatient over God’s exceedingly slow response; third, we think that God won’t give it anyway. Thus we wander far and wide searching for that which can fill our heart’s deepest yearnings often in the wrong places and in the wrong persons. Unable to have what we want, we feel sad, defeated, and betrayed. The good news is that God is willing to give us what we ask from him. If ever there is a delay it is because God wants to dispose our hearts so that we would be ready to receive the gift that He wants to give.
