Why don't we always get what we want?

I have been wondering why we sometimes do not get what we want. Is God really there? Even if you are true at your heart, sometimes things just do not work for you.

God doesn't give us what we want. He gives us what we NEED. A lot of times we convince ourselves that our wants are needs. He knows better.

I think God is fair for he must open o window for for you when he closes the door. Every cloud has a silver lining. So when you face a problem, don't worry and just make a detour to reach your goal. Do tell yourself: come on! I will persist until I succeed!

Thanks for the kind words. Maybe what we want is not always the best for us.

Yes, I agree with you. Sometimes the next one you meet is better than the previous one.

Really? I wonder you get the problem. Usually I get what I want ;-) Time is the only problem. Sometimes I got it immediately, sometimes I had to wait for a long long time before eventually got it. If we are really want these things, and have a strong determination, Nothing we can't get. So, be careful with our wish. We can't ask a helicopter if we don't get a helipad in our house :)
