Just because God loves you unconditionally,

doesn't mean you love yourself unconditionally, or others unconditionally, or His genius plan for your life unconditionally. The sin of human-wisdom-dependency and its fruit -- self-contempt and others-contempt, robs Christians of the joy and peace that's ours in Jesus. Pride, not humility. Walking around with unrecognized-and-therefore-unconfessed sin is a heavy yoke on our shoulders weighing us down. Don't try harder to believe better, be better. CONFESS. Ahhh. Priceless is the feathery-light yoke of Jesus.


CONFESSion is the most-underrated strategy in the Church, for a life of happiness. And contagion among seculars.


And CONFESS your unbelief in His sovereign reign over every detail of your daily life. Ahhh. You won't be able to THANK Him for the harrrd in your life unless freshly convicted of your unbelief in His sovereignty, so you can CONFESS each time you're AWARE of feeling alone and in charge.
