Did you do what was asked of you?

I had an incident today that has me thinking and I wanted to share it with you. Today, I was out of town at a sponsors office conducting an audit. The individual who accompanied me was hired specifically to assist me with my work. A few days ago, I gave specific instructions to my assistant on outlining some papers in such a way that would make it easier for me to conduct my audit review once I arrived at my sponsor's office. Once we arrived to conduct the audit, I was ready to hit the ground running. I pulled out the papers that I had given to my assistant and didn't see anything as I requested but a totally different outline that completely confused my brain. My assistant informed me that she knew I would not like it and would probably be upset but someone else told her to change what I told her for my own good and that it would work much better. I wanted to scream. I wanted to fuss, pout, and walk out and get some air because now my day was not going to be smooth like I expected. I'm not a numbers girl so my brain is trained on what works. Sure enough in trying to retrain my eyes to complete my auditing task to this new format, it ended up being a mess for me and I was so frustrated that I developed a headache and did not complete the audit as timely as I expected. This got me to thinking, about when God tells me to follow instructions and I do what I want because I think it will work out better although I know that he may be upset or disappointed but I do it anyway. It must be truly frustrating to God when I don't listen and without thought or regard continue to do my own thing. When I do this, it appears that I think I know better and have more answers than he does. I know that's absolutely false. I will think about this next time that I don't follow God's instructions or listen to 'other' voices or my own thoughts. Did you do what was asked of you today?
