When We Ask of God

Sometimes He gives.
Or not.
Or even takes away. And lets wander. And fall (ouch).

We perceive this as His withholding a kindness -- God being unkind. And unGod.
We deceive ourselves and think Him absent. Where is He? And why won't He do something?

Perhaps we were not yet in a place where His "kindness" would have led us to repentance (Romans 2:4).
We up and repent.

Ah, so it was kindness, after all.
