Impossible to be circumstance-dependent

for my joy and peace, unless I’m wise in my own eyes, leaning on my own understanding, confident-I-know-what’s-best.  Only the Jesus-dependent — the clueless-I-know-what’s-best, experience the peace that passes understanding.  Life is unnecessarily intense/stressful for the confident-I-know-what’s-best addict, consumed with his/her own worthiness by judging others in order to compete with them, obsessing over human achievement/somebodiness, needing to make a difference in this world.  Winning — as precious as it is, is not-nearly-as important as avoiding loss/failure.  Bottomless pit of neediness.
