Impossible to be a contented enjoyer
of everyone and everything just as it is, unless I’m actively believing in the sovereignty of Jesus (see Him behind everyone and everything, not just nature, but every man-made thing, every bad design, every jerk, every loser, including ShepherdDave, as part of His handiwork as the CreatorSustainer of the Universe), I will be circumstance-dependent for my joy and peace. Like ShepherdDave. Claiming the Lordship of Jesus, claiming to believe in His sovereignty, but without the benefit. Unable to enjoy my current prosperity and accomplishments, always focused on the next. More. Better. Self-absorbed. Intense.
—ShepherdDave, Christian malcontent, except when he’s been freshly convicted of being confident-he-knows-what’s-best/independent/Dave-dependent, so he might momentarily be DumbSheepDave, enjoying the bliss of Jesus-contentment/Jesus-dependency/Jesus-humility, so the nonbelievers around him might experience the love of Jesus
