i am trying to see things in perspective.

my dog wants a bite of my chocolate biscuit. i know she cannot have this because chocolate makes dogs very sick. my dog does not understand this. she pouts and purrs and tries to convince me to give her just a tiny bit. when i do not give in, she eventually gives up and lays down, drooping and sad. i know God has my best interest in mind—like i have my dog's. when i want something and it is withheld from me, i am sure that God thinks to Himself: "silly girl, she thinks this is what she wants but she does not understand how it will hurt."
