On transformation

It occurs to me that a large part of our issue with God and His responses to us is that we want glory without transformation.

Oh, we wouldn't exactly phrase it like that. But fame, wealth, acknowledgement, winning...are all forms of glory.

It also occurs to me that a large part of spiritual transformation has to do with humility...which in itself is an absence of glory in every way that the world defines it. A way of being in which the only glory that matters is the presence of God himself. And the joy and peace and contentment which that releases is enough.
