This just struck me... "I spent years asking God to be a part of whatever I was doing. When I read the book of Acts, I see people privileged to play a part in what God was doing." Francis Chan - Forgotten God.
I KNOW I'm not the only one who ever prayed, instructing God HOW to answer my prayers or prayed that God would use me (in my daily life as long as I didn't have to go out of my way or be uncomfortable). I know we all KNOW this but it just struck me again that God has a plan and I willingly serve HIM. He doesn't serve ME or make a contribution to what I attempt to accomplish.
