Anyone ever try to do this? It is exhausting! I love my faith and my belief system, it is not about that. But maybe we all play God to some extent?

I think we all do. How many of us really are ready to just let God handle our problems and worries.

How many times have I said, please God please make me life this way or that way.

Of course I am married to a man who thinks he is god. When thinks he has been disrespected or hurt he decides how to hurt that person and then without mercy or conscience deals out the punishment he sees fit.

Hi TT,

Or too, trying to figure out everyone or everything as well...this is what I do, then it makes me judgemental to a degree, and I think whoa, who made me God? 🙂
I am basically a kind and forgiving person, but when I play God, I get tired and confused. It is laborious.

Your husband sounds like someone in my family as well. I don't know what to say, but had to smile at your comment as I completely understand.

thanks for the smile OMW.
opooh yea OMW, I try to play God for my family too. for years i smoothed things over at church and work for my husband and etc etc. I tried to stop him from consequences of his temper. I thought if I 'loved' him enough he could change. WHOA. big mistake. Only God can change people's hearts. and then only if that peroson wants it. to.

sorry..i can't resist posting my all-time favorite alec baldwin quote from malice: "I have an M.D. from Harvard. I am board certified in cardiothoracic medicine and trauma surgery. I have been awarded citations from seven different medical boards in New England, and I am never, ever sick at sea. So I ask you: When someone goes into that chapel and they fall on their knees and they pray to God that their wife doesn't miscarry, or that their daughter doesn't bleed to death, or that their mother doesn't suffer acute neural trauma from postoperative shock, who do you think they're praying to?
Now, go ahead and read your Bible, Dennis! And you go to your church, and, with any luck, you might win the annual raffle, but if you're looking for God, he was in operating room number two on November seventeenth, and he doesn't like to be second guessed.

You ask me if I have a God complex? Let me tell you something -- I am God."

on a serious note: when *I* stopped playing God, it really freed up alot of my time. lol
