My idols are all about
my feeling good about myself. Performance addiction. Conditional love from me to me. Perform well, and I love my life, love me. Perform poorly, and I hate my life, hate me. Always intense, trying to avoid performing poorly. And I sure don’t care about Jesus’ imputed worthiness to me. All about me and my performance, not Him and His.
I need a Shepherd to rescue me from myself afresh, convict me of my sin of independence, wake me up to His unconditional love for me, so I can be empowered to extend unconditional love to myself and others, and Him, and His genius plan for my life, clueless about what would be best for me today, curious and expectant to see what He does next, in me, others, circumstances. And thankful about everything right now, just as it is.
