“Wanna hear God laugh? Tell him your plans.”  I see this pop up on Facebook from time to time and I want to write a comment in all caps. But I don’t. I just scroll on down and try to forget. I guess the reason I do not like this quote is because it makes God seem like he is an evil entity, who would try to purposely fail our plans.  I don’t know why, but I just hate the image of God that this quote portrays.  Exactly what kind of God do you worship? Is it a sinister God who gets great delight in wrecking your plans?  I know that most people believe that God has every detail of their life mapped out. But I guess I believe that we have free will, of course bound by our faith and guidelines,  and it just seems mean that he would wait for us to make plans, to delight in messing with them.

That isn’t my God.
