Being the fix-it man vs. being best friends

Because I love Brianna, I long to fix her problems, and to make everything right for her. But I wasn't given that power. I'm not God - I can't instantly make the sun shine, or make the clouds blow away.
God didn't call me to fix my Beloved's problems. Instead, He has called me to love her through them all. And do you know what? In the beauty of God's plan, loving her through all the struggles we face is much more beautiful and wonderful and a much more powerful expression of true love than just taking all the problems away.
Now that I know that, without a doubt, is is such a joy to simply love Brianna through everything, and be her encourager, supporter, and best friend.
