Jesus only seems Lord of my life when

I have no agenda of my own — except being curious and expectant to see what He does NEXT, in me, others, circumstances. When I have no agenda of my own I dunno what’s best for me or others, and I’m just an observer without judgment or agenda, instead of a performer, prove-er, competitor. Having no agenda of my own enables me to enjoy everyone just as we are, and everything just as it is. When I have no agenda of my own, I’m the happiest, most peaceful. No hurry, no worry. And more importantly, I’m others-absorbed, rather than self-absorbed — enabled to unconditionally love the hardest to love.

But it feels WRONG to to my human-wisdom to not know what to do next — to not have an agenda of my own. Every human has an agenda, so agenda seems normal, okay, to human-wisdom. For me, following Jesus and His agenda, not my own, is not normal. ABnormal. Weird. Being weird is becoming okay for me. Jesus is making me weirder and weirder, according to human-wisdom.

Why can't I have easier, Jesus?

Because I'm retraining you in submissiveness, Dave. I love you too much to leave you as you are -- dependent on your circumstances for happiness. You don't imagine yourself willful, self-absorbed, n
