not my will, but yours

I've been reflecting on these words of Jesus a lot, recently.

James says,
'Now listen, you who say, "Today or tomorrow we will go to this or that city, spend a year there, or carry on business and make money." Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. [...] Instead, you ought to say, "If it is the Lord's will, we will live or do this or that."' James 4:13-15
And I've realised how much the plans I make are a reflection of my will, not God's will. This doesn't mean I oughtn't make plans. I should, and wisely, and then pray that God will do his will. And I pray that my will be conformed more and more to His.
