It pleases God to give us the infinite gift of the kingdom. But it does not always please us to accept this gift. To accept it, we know we must make room in our hearts. W.H. Auden once wrote that “The desires of the heart are as crooked as corkscrews.” As we push deeper into our hearts, we discover that what we desire spirals back and forth between God and the things that keep us from God.
