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.
