UGH!?!?!?!?!?!?!

I have a rant that I just really need to get off of my chest before my blood pressure reaches maximum capacity.

Why do we(and yes I mean myself too) as Christians often feel like we need to take over the role of the Holy Spirit?  He doesn't need my help for anything. 

"For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, 
and not of evil, to give you an expected end."  
Jeremiah 29:11

God has the plan.  He is the plan.  He's also the beginning, the middle, and the end of the plan.  Burying my daughter wasn't on my plan but it was on HIS plan.  Therefore it brings me to HIS expected end.  All those things that God plans for me, even though I may not like them, also bring me to HIS expected end.  It may not take me down the road I expected to go but it brings me to HIS expected end.

This is simply something I have observed a lot of in the last 13 months.  And tonight I read something that just lit that fuse all over again.

So for this moment I, or more accurately God through conviction, am attempting to remove my "Holy Spirit in Training" button.  He doesn't need me.  I need HIM!

Alpha and Omega baby, the beginning and the end. Yep, it is us who needs God. We are also His hands here on this great planet. I'm not sure what happened but I pray Gods presence and peace be with ya.

Have a terrific day sweetie!!!

Thumbs up to your post. You're right...God does not need our help or input in HIS plans for our lives. Sometimes we do get in the way...but it won't be long until God convicts us of the matter. It is up to us to listen to what He wants from us. THanks for sharing. It's a good reminder for me too.
