Jesus is Lord of my life when

I momentarily relinquish ownership to Him, so I'm curious/expectant to see what He does NEXT, in me, others, circumstances, INSTEAD of me owning the outcome in any area of my life. Not MY will be done, but His. Not MY agenda, but His. Ahhhh. Jesus-dependency, not human-wisdom-dependency. When I don't have ownership, I dunno what's best for me. Jesus-dependents in the midst of crisis, experience a peace unknown to human-wisdom-dependents -- no pressure, stress, angst. Jesus-dependency is compelling to seculars. Nobody but Jesus gets credit for momentary Jesus-dependency in a Christian.

Whadda I do when I realize I've taken back ownership -- when my peace and joy depend on my circumstances? CONFESS. Ahhh. The starting place for fresh faith/dependency is fresh conviction by the Spirit, of human-wisdom-dependency.
