I was trying to compose an answer that just got bigger and bigger so I settled on this Scripture, it may not make sense in light of your post but I hope it does --
And he spake a parable unto them [to this end], that men ought always to pray, and not to faint;
Saying, There was in a city a judge, which feared not God, neither regarded man:
And there was a widow in that city; and she came unto him, saying, Avenge me of mine adversary.
And he would not for a while: but afterward he said within himself, Though I fear not God, nor regard man;
Yet because this widow troubleth me, I will avenge her, lest by her continual coming she weary me.
And the Lord said, Hear what the unjust judge saith.
And shall not God avenge his own elect, which cry day and night unto him, though he bear long with them?
I tell you that he will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?
~The Wheels of God's Justice grind exceedingly slow, but they grind exceedingly fine~
Freedom is not: doing everything you want to.
Freedom is: not having to do what you don't want to do.
