Jesus has been deprogramming me

from the worldly brainwashing I’ve been receiving all my life — outside the Church, and INside, that humans know what’s best, that I’m supposed to be wise in my own eyes, lean on my own understanding, be confident-I-know-what’s-best.  And He’s been using my car.  Driving all alone, as I pay attention to my thoughts, feelings, reactions, I’m seeing this confidence in me in every situation.  Impossible to be impatient, hurried, without being confident-I-know-what’s-best.  Impossible to be competitive, wannabe superior.  Impossible to judge others.  The root of all my idolatry/sin, is confidence-I-know-what’s-best.  Jesus and His imputed worthiness are unsatisfying to a worldly/independent/confident-he-knows-what’s-best.  Half the solution is recognizing the problem.  Unconfessed sin is like being an addict and not even knowing it.

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
