Ok, Sweetsurrender started it. Its confession time!
I have recently been made aware of, by the Lord, that when I pray "Lord, what do You want me to do?" I am actually planning on seeing if His agenda fits mine. Will what He tells me to do fit in with what I want? If its not in my comfort zone will I say "oh, not right now, Lord!" or "oh, I cant do THAT!" Or if I dont like what He says I will reject it? Pick and choose so to speak. ACK! Not a good thing!
When we ask, we should be fully prepared to obey exactly what He says, when He says it!
Yep - otherwise a bit of a waste uv time askin' in the 1st place I reckon!! "Personal agendas" that we all tend to have as Christians. Yuk, HATE 'EM!!!!
Must admit that I do love the fact we feel free to 'confess' here. We have a relaxed atmosphere and loving, so I guess that explains it. It's rather unusual tho, I would have thought.
I noticed that your edit was 'names changed to protect the guilt... er, innocent!' Hmm... that got me intrigued! *hides a broad grin*
