draw near to God and He will Draw near to you
You must peruse God with everything you have no matter how long it takes. Look at the story of Joseph how God took him through so many things and yet for the ultimate good . He does things in a way that will have the greatest outcome the way that will effect the most people for His glory . When life becomes all about him and not about self this is when you are able to find Gods peace .
It does not matter how long it takes as long as your goal is to find God and to seek him with all of your mind all of your heart and all of your soul
Jeremiah 29:13 (NIV)
You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.
It is not on your terms it is on his terms when you do this you will find him . It has to be whole hardheartedly not with conditions .
I do not want to hear a response about well i can not do this because of x y or z either do it or do not do it that is the only answer .
If you do seek him with all of your heart no matter how long it takes you will be rewarded . For he is a rewarded of those who diligently seek him
And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.
It is not I who says these things it is God who says these things do not take my word for it even though I am living proof of these things
But God will not lie and he will not Fail
