God knows what you need. He knows the right time to speak. He knows how long to wait. He knows what to speak. He knows how to speak to you. He knows you.
He knows your desires, your hopes, your dreams.
He sees through you.
Trust in the Lord always.
What He calls you to do, He will enable you to bear.
If you've come to the end of yourself, good.
If you are desperate, good.
If you are crying out for help, good.
If you don't think you can make it, good.
God will reveal what He needs to reveal at the perfect time.
He knows what you can handle.
He knows what you can bear.
He will not give you more than you can take.
However, He will push you to your limits to learn to trust and rely on Him and to lean not on your own understanding.
God is a good God.
Everything, every season we encounter is for our good.
Maybe sometimes He tries to bring us back from our complicated additions to our faith to kneeling in amazement at the cross.

Life is but a moment. At least sometimes that is how it feels compared to eternity; especially when we cannot even fully wrap our minds around how long eternity truly is. And if life is so short compared to our afterlife in Heaven, then why do we do what we do?
What do we do?
Everything we do on this earth should be to glorify God. It glorifies God to exalt His name by spreading the Truth...His love.
Therefore, if life is so short, then every single thing we do here is pretty much worthless unless we have somehow affected our eternity or another person's eternal position.

What is the point of friendship unless you encourage and build each other up to do the Father's will?

What is the use for marriage unless the person you are joined with strengthens and further aids you in growing in the Father's love?

What is the point of going to school unless you are taking what you are learning as valuable and learning to apply it to life to somehow take others with you to Heaven?

What is the point of a job unless you are showing the love of Christ to your coworkers and using your money to support God's children?

I think the point has been clearly made.

Everything in this world is useless...unless it is being used to GLORIFY GOD.

What are you doing? Where are your thoughts? Where is your motivation? Where is your treasure?

"Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. 20But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal." Matthew 6:19-20
