Being led or leading

There have been many times when I’ve tried to lead the Holy Spirit. I’ve wanted to direct Him and tell Him what to do and when to do it. The irony is that the Holy Spirit was given to direct us. Desiring the Holy Spirit means we allow the Holy Spirit to guide us. By definition, it’s ridiculous to desire the Holy Spirit for our own purposes.—Forgotten God, page 89

<idle musing>
It might be ridiculous, but we do it all the time, don't we? Lord forgive us! May we allow ourselves to be led by you.
