I was listening to a sermon today as I was in the shop fabricating. That's one of the best things about working with your hands, is your mind and heart can focus on other things as you just work away. The time goes really fast.
In the sermon I was convicted about how I pray and the prayer requests that I have recently posted. It seems like I am presuming on God to answer my requests to Him, in thinking that I know the direction He should go. Like He needs my help in deciding what is best for me/Priceless Granite.
I should be asking that God would do as He sees best, after all "He gives what is best when we leave the choice to Him"- Jim Elliot- so shouldn't I just leave it up to Him? My request should be more like; pray that God would do as He sees fit and that I would be content, even joyful, in His choice.
