When we take God only as someone who can give protection or fulfill our wishes then we limit our connection and the time which which we spend with him. He only remains as someone outside who helps at the time of need.
When we truly love God to our core then the approach will become different.
Now the relationship is unlimited and boundless and it is not only for a purpose, reason or for some time in a day. This Love or connection with the source makes you full and whole.
