I wish that what's ahead,

was already behind me, when it's complicated, or scary, or above my pay grade, or my last attempt met with failure. What can I DO to actually LOOK FORWARD to the challenge? CONFESS to Jesus that I don't really believe He's sovereign, knows what He's doing, is worthy of my trust, and that I don't LIKE having to trust Him, don't like uncertainty, because what I REALLY want, is EASY. Just like any atheist.

When I face harrrd, I might fail. And that only bothers me when my human-wisdom is informing my sense of reality, instead of Scripture, which teaches His sovereignty, His Lordship, and my need to be dependent on Him, and not on DAVE.
