Only the proud experience fear.

The humble are fearless. The humble are unbothered by failure, weakness, pity by others, losing all their somebodiness, being considered nobodies, losers. The humble live and love with reckless abandon.

Only the proud are self-absorbed, hide our weakness, fear, failure. Only the humble are relaxed. On the inside. Feel no need to APPEAR relaxed. Only the humble enjoy everything just as it is, everyone just as we are, especially self. Only the humble THANK Jesus for everything, because only the humble are clueless about what’s best, so they experience the peace that surpasses understanding, trusting that SovereignShepherdJesus knows what’s best, and delivers what’s best.
