Can our Love for God just be another form of Self-Centeredness?

Love has no meaning unless it remains alive when the one you claim to love seems distant and unresponsive.  If you love God only when He immediately satisfies your desires, your love is merely one more form of self-centeredness.  Your love becomes trust only when you choose to believe that God brought you out of something bad to bring you into something good BEFORE YOU EXPERIENCE THAT SOMETHING GOOD.

Then your love is sustained by confidence in God’s character, not by enjoyment of current blessings.
