When God works on the soul, He doesn't give you a list of choices to pick from. God has already ordained the way He is going to work on you, and it's called life. Yet though that's the very thing I say He's doing, I often don't like it. “Just give me a book to read about it. Give me a cerebral way to understand what You want to do, and maybe I can ease into this lesson without all this trauma.”

But it doesn't work that way. God uses the storms in the soul to force us back into the truth. We go back into spirit. And we thank Him for it.— The Rest of the Gospel: When the partial Gospel has worn you out, page 168

I agree; I'd rather read a book :) But, God prefers to use life, not just cerebral stuff only. But, we do thank him for it once he's done it his way, so why not just thank him for it from the outset. We know the outcome will be good, so why put ourselves through all that misery of fighting him?
