Do You Confuse God?

Do you confuse God? Is it even possible to confuse God or does He just look at us and slowly shake His head? Lets look at the meanings of the word confusion:

Dictionary.com defines it at this: '
to perplex or bewilder,to make unclear or indistinct.' Do we do this to God? I think many of us do because we think we know what is best for us or at least we think we do.

When I wanted to move to Washington, I initially wanted to move to another area and applied and interviewed for a job there, however, I also believed God had told me we were going to live right where we are now.

So, He put me in Washington where He wanted me.

I told my husband I wanted a home with a deck, finished basement and front porch and my husband found that exact home. Now I am doing my best to get out of it for a myriad of reasons:
1- Kitchen to small
2-The stairs are getting difficult to climb
3-The girls need more room
4-The repairs are never ending
yadadahyadadah...on and on.

God must be scratching His head and saying to the angels...what now?

For so many years suffering with my Fibromyalgia I wanted to just stay home and rest and now I can do that and I am not resting, I am working 5-6 hours a day from home and on week-ends and looking for another job.

Scratching His head once again...why isn't she resting? Why isn't she relaxing more?
I am giving her this time to rest and she doesn't.

I want to help others and then I over extend myself and don't want to help anyone.

Where is that happy medium? I know it isn't just me. We need to learn to be content with what God has given us, at least I do. I need to learn to ask that Gods will be done and not my own and I need to listen to what others are telling me...

Are you sure you want this? Be careful what you wish for...

Most of all we must learn to be content as in 1 Timothy 6:6, 'Now godliness with contentment is great gain.'

I ran into my church today to drop off some paperwork and my Pastor stopped me and told me, you know you are not supposed to be leaving this area don't you? Yes, I am learning that, but Lord, if you want me to stay, please find us a bigger home...

Ooops, there I go again!

I believe He has a plan for us but I also believe part of that plan is to dream!!!! Be content where you are but never never never stop dreaming.

I know exactly what you are saying, I have been asking GOD for a house and property for us in a state we love.. but there never seems to be work for my husband there... So for now we go to the work GOD leads us to.
