412. God, tell me the reason, please

In six days, God,
You created and completed
Heaven and earth.
How is it that my love-room
Still remains unfinished,
My devotion-room untouched,
My surrender-room unbuilt?
  God, tell me the reason, please.

“My son, to complete your love-room,
  I need more satisfaction-power.
  I have run short of it.

“My son, in order to start working
  On your devotion-room,
  I need more determination-power.
   Right now I don’t have it.

“My son, you want Me to build
  Your surrender-room.
   Believe Me,
  I am desperately searching
  For My patience-power.”
