“It’s not a test, Dave.”
Not about your performance. Not a competition. Not about you vs. them. It’s about Jesus being behind everyone and everything.
I find myself being wonderfully helped, repeating those five words, “It’s not a test, Dave,” over and over, as I drive my car. Hopefully the experience will spread to other areas of my life, because EVERYthing I do is an effort to prove myself worthy. I’ve just not known the real me well enough to recognize the extent of this proving addiction that has defined my entire adult life. So exhausting.
