God says no or wait because He knows all. He sees all. He knows what is healthy for us and what is not. He knows what protects us and what will harm us.
It is in the storm that we seek an anchor to keep us steady, a rock to cling to, a hope to believe in.
But even though it’s uncomfortable, we know God is safe. We know He is trustworthy and loving. The Church needs to be the same way.
