I am frequently unaware of being
weighed down by an unsolved problem, issue, challenge, decision, until after it’s solved/fixed, and I feel suddenly lighter. A ShepherdDave experience. DumbSheepDave never feels the weight of the world on his shoulders, because he has his Shepherd’s yoke, light as a feather. No problems, no ownership. Shepherd Jesus’ problem, job. Ahhh.
Being a clueless, childlike, dependent sheep is the best thing in the whole wide world. Profound relaxation. No hurry. Always a fruit of the Spirit’s convicting me of the sin of independence. Always temporary. Whyzat? World, flesh, devil, wooing me back to independence/self-confidence/self-reliance/judge/competitor/over-achiever/hurried/prideful, trying to prove myself worthy apart from Jesus.
–DumbSheepDave, amazed at the difference his Shepherd’s Spirit has been making over the past year, hoping the pre-believers around him have been noticing
