I’m the happiest when

the Spirit opens my eyes afresh and I realize that what’s going on in my life, is that Jesus is growing me in self-awareness and self-acceptance of my dysfunctional self.  Ahhh, it’s okay to be DysfunctionalDave.  Ahhh, so that’s why He thwarts my agenda, why things aren’t going the way I want, why I have harrrd today instead of easy.  I’m being retrained in a better way to live.  As a dependent.  A follower instead of a leader.  Humble.  DumbSheepDave.

When I live in denial of my true self, when I don’t want to see how dysfunctional I really am, when I’m desperately trying to be a leader not a follower, a winner not a loser in the eyes of others and in my own eyes, a make-it-happen guy, so I can feel good about myself, oddly enough, that’s when I’m the least happy, workin really, really hard to be a winner.  ShepherdDave.  Independent, wordly, prideful.

–ShepherdDave, needing fresh conviction of the sin of independence, so he can be momentarily transformed into DumbSheepDave, with something the pre-believers around him might actually want

If you don’t want your kids to be prodigals,

ask Jesus to grow you as the chief confessor in the home, not the chief accuser, or the chief expert on all things Christian.  If you unwittingly give them the impression that you’ve got this Christia
