A Painful Confession:   theunfetteredpreacher 

It appears I am just a cry baby, upset, because once again God, refuses to do things my way.  I have laid on the floor, pounding my fists and kicking my feet.

I let my feelings and concerns be known.  Yet, the Lord still wants to do things His way.   How aggravating is that?

You would think after 2,000 years, He would be ready to listen to someone who knows what should be done.  Nope.

Are you not ashamed of yourself for thinking you know better than God?  I  know I am.   Yet, here I go again…  Lord, do it MY WAY, IN MY TIME, BECAUSE, I SAID SO!!!

Lord, I am glad You do things Your Way and not mine.  I realize You see the end from the start.  You know what is best for my life.

Please help me, to put a sock in it.  To Hush up and listen.  To understand and obey.  To humble myself . . Lord, I am listening.

You, Oh Lord, are God…  It is Your will and not mine, that must be done.  Forgive me oh God.

Make me a vessel of Your Love and Grace….  Help Lord…

  1. I could not have read this at a better time.I have been fighting with the thoughts that GOD is not answering my prayers and thoughts right away. Every day I ask him the same thing over and over and yet the same prayer is not answered I am still in terrible pain, with not any relief. I too want it answered NOW, but it is not and I have to realize that God has a reason for everything, and in time it will be done.I have to try to live with the pain i have for now, until God sees it fit to either take it away or find a better way to help me cope with it, or what lies ahead for me in the future in his time, not mine.

  2. It is said familiarity breeds contempt but the Bible says let not the wise man boast of his wisdom , let not the mighty man boast of his might . Let not the rich man boast in his riches but let him who boasts boast in this: that he understands and knows me that I am the Lord who exercises loving kindness justice and righteousness on the earth for I delight in those things declares the Lord.

    I know you are well aware of those verses but if you’re like me you find yourself, who has been told to walk boldly before the throne of grace, getting too familiar and slipping into entitled. That’s when I have to beg the Holy Spirit to renew my mind and fill me with a heart that desperately loves my Papa God and just rest in His PLAN, His sufficiency. To really rest in knowing He is all I need is everything.
