“Jesus, if you REALLY loved me,

you would give me MUCH-easier circumstances.” YES, YES, YES! Dave’sFlesh is convinced of this, cuz Dave’sFlesh is confident-it-knows-best, knows-what’ll-make-Dave-happiest. Dave’sFlesh knows NOTHing about delivering happiness. So Jesus loves me wonderfully when He opens my eyes so I’m disillusioned with my flesh’s view of reality. Scripture’s take on reality explains the pathway to happiness, peace, sanity — Jesus-dependency, Jesus as Lord of every detail of Dave’s life. Ahhh. Clueless-I-know-what’s-best. Impossible to be fearful, frustrated, discouraged, bored, unless I’m confident-I-know-best.

Like all humans — outside and inside the Church, I’ve been so deeply brainwashed to accept my flesh’s view of reality, that it’s taken a LOT of suffering, been excruciatingly painful for me, to become more-and more disillusioned with my flesh’s view of reality. Costly, but priceless, precious, beyond best. Suffering really does produce perseverance, then character, then hope/faith/dependency — beyond the best.

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

Everything seems sovereign over my

life except You, Jesus.  News, politics, my health, stock market, bond market, talking heads predicting the future.  When my eyes are fixed on these other sovereignties, I feel ALONE, like my life is
