God Moments vs. Impatience

I always feel like I need to work on praying more for guidance. I seem to struggle with that a lot internally. Maybe just cause it's in my nature to be very strong willed, impatient, driven, and I think that I have pretty good street smarts that makes me this way. But I have never been the one to stop and pray about what God wants me to do with anything, which classes I should take, what I should do with my life, who I should invest time with, etc. But them I feel like for most of my life, things just seem to fall into perfect place for me. My God moments I call them. Where things could not have a lined up so perfectly without His divine intervention. Not to mention I feel like God made me this way for a reason. Should I just go with it? I'm pretty sure most of those personality traits aren't sins and I like them for the most part. But I do know that God wants us to strive always for our best - so maybe I just need to improve on some of those things. I'm not sure. Just looking for thoughts or comments today. Should I just accept that God made me this way and our relationship is pretty strong, and I love and respect His "God moments" in my life. Or should I start spending more time in prayer asking Him what He wants me to do - rather just going with the flow that is my nature?

Prayer never hurt anything ;) However, if you spend more time with God, except Him to show up or be more active in our lives. Sometimes it feels like in the ways we DIDN'T want. hah!!
