Apply as Necessary

It's not about what I want. To the extent that I succeed in making it about what I want apart from what God wills, ironically, I steer myself toward meaninglessness and frustration, the very outcomes I could never want. Further, although my feelings may be a reliable guide to what I want in the short run, they do not reliably inform me about God's beneficent will, which is the only reliable guide to attaining the state of happiness and human fulfillment which is my ultimate desire.
