I care about the WRONG things

when I’m human-wisdom-reliant, and it’s like being in prison, being in bondage, being addicted — a terrible, horrible, no-good, very-bad way to go through my day. Wrong things like my performance, reputation, worthiness — even things like my emotional health and spiritual health. When I DON’T care about those lesser things, it’s ALWAYS because the Spirit has freshly opened my eyes to see the stupidity of my human-wisdom-reliance, which has NEVER delivered happiness to me.

Happiness is caring about ONE thing — that my name is written in Heaven, which means I have the imputed worthiness of Jesus, needing NONE of my own, which means HE is Lord of my life, not my human-wisdom, so I’m eager to fix my eyes and thoughts on Him to see what He does NEXT, in me, others, circumstances. Ahhh. My human-wisdom gets zero credit for any Jesus-dependent happiness I experience. Work of His Spirit.
