Best thing about failure,

is the opportunity it provides me to treat myself like Jesus treats me: with unconditional love.  Historically, I’m much harsher with myself than my earthly dad ever was with me.  That’s typical of adult children who were not loved perfectly.  Unconditionally.

So what faith/repentance looks like for ShepherdDave, is being convicted by the Spirit of my independence idolatry, being temporarily returned to being DumbSheepDave, where I can extend to myself the same grace/compassion/enjoyment that my ShepherdJesus extends to me.  Ahhh.  Priceless.  Just as I am.

–DumbSheepDave, loving more and more, the Shepherd’s Spirit convicting him of the sin of independence, hoping the pre-believers around him are noticing the difference in 2014
