I'm pretty sure God rolls his eyes at any mention of ‘my plans.’

Joyce Meyer, one of my favorite teachers, once said that “we always pray for God to change our circumstances when God actually uses our circumstances to change us.” I must say that yes, I've been changed.

Bring me joy, bring me peace
Bring the chance to be free.
Bring me anything that brings You glory.
And I know there'll be days
When this life brings me pain,
But if that's what it takes to praise You
Jesus, bring the rain.
~Mercy Me

I don't know many people who are at that place in their journey -- filled with such spiritual maturity. As I see my faith stretched daily, I yearn for the day when Pete and I come to a place where we can fervently say, "God, I want what you want. If what I want isn't what you want, then change my mind."

Have you reached that point in your faith?
