All believers who work hard at being good,

who live under the constant burden of performing well, are invited by Jesus to a delightfully-easy way of living, where we no longer need to prove ourselves to God, others, self, as independents, carrying the weight of the world on our shoulders, facing life struggles alone.  Jesus modeled for us a dependent lifestyle, which is restful, easy, fun.  No problems, no jobs to fix.  ShepherdJesus’ problems, and His jobs to fix.  Ahhh.

A dependent does have one job.  To be curious and expectant to see what Jesus does next, in me, others, circumstances.  And to ask Him and thank Him about everything.  And if I forget?  CONFESS.  Satan wants me berating myself, not confessing.

Problem is, I need fresh humility to wear the yoke of Jesus, the yoke of dependency, and fresh humility is impossible, apart from fresh conviction of the sin of independence.  But I can ASK to be convicted afresh.  Ahhh.

–DumbSheepDave, baby steppin in more dependent directions, because folks have been praying, hoping the pre-believers around him are noticing the difference
