Not in a really mean way, but in a way that just makes you feel really stupid?
I felt that way on yesterday.
I had something major to deal with. Heck, we're friends, I'll tell you... I had to go back to court. Still dealing with the aftermath of my stupid, ugly divorce.
Anyway, I thought I knew what was going to happen. I knew what I was going to say, I'd rehearsed the thing a few times, I was ready.
But nothing happened the way I thought it would. Absolutely nothing.
So on my way home, I thought about how I'd prayed that morning and how I'd asked God to be with me and to work things out.
He must have really laughed at me.
Because He knew then that nothing I was praying for was going to come to pass because nothing I thought would happen came to pass.
See what I'm saying?
I was praying for an outcome that would never be realized because the day just wasn't set up that way.
At the end of that prayer, I do remember asking that His will be done. That was my save. Because even though things didn't go as I thought they would, I can rest in knowing that His will was done.
And I also rest in knowing that on yesterday, I gave God a really good laugh. In the midst of everything else He has to deal with, I'm sure He appreciated that!
Have you ever made God laugh? Have you ever plotted something out, only to realize that God had another plan?
