Whose Agenda?

“What if we started praying according to God’s agenda, and not ours?”
-Kevin Beachy

Wow. Those words hit me when I heard them this morning.

What a concept! Asking God to help us fit into His plans, instead of asking Him to fit into ours.

Man, I’ve been really good at making that second request in the previous sentence. “God, just help me do what I want to do. Help make these things that I want to happen, happen.”

This was a good reminder for me today to spend more time praying for what He would like to see come to fruition in my life, instead of just all the things I’m looking for.

Thanks, God. 🙂

    As a new Christian, I have definitely struggling with this. I forget that it’s not all about me! Thank you so much for this reminder…
