Saint Dimitry of Rostov
It is not possible, but also it is not good for you that all be done according to your wish. Many times, your thought is lost, your wish is vicious and your will is selfish. . And the all-knowing God sees it, even if you don’t realise. This is why he doesn’t allow that all your wishes be fulfilled, so that your soul – your biggest treasure – will not be hurt. Therefore, entrust yourself in the hands of God and into His will.
For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord. Because all in this life is not forever and you should rather seek for the eternal things. What do I mean by eternal? Salvation. You are living in world as a ship on the sea and you are sinking as Peter did. This is why, you should cry together with him “My Lord, save me!” And our Lord will give you His hand as he did to Peter.
Therefore, you need to be diligent and watchful, don’t waste in vain the time of your life, because it is a gift in raising the soul towards the achievement of the eternal goods. Bear in mind and watch so that a single day doesn’t pass in vain, because you will lose it and nobody can guarantee that you will have another one. If the day has passed, it is gone, and time once you’ve lost it you cannot bring it back.
