I know I’m sane when, I hardly care about anything or anyone but Jesus. He’s not merely one of the big deals in my life: He’s everything, and everything else, as good as it might be, simply pales in comparison to Jesus.
So how do I get there, when I’m not there? Impossible. I cannot change myself. I need intervention from on High: fresh conviction of the sin of independence: the sin of being unsatisfied with Jesus and His righteousness, wanting something more: some of my own, that comes from my performance, my agenda for me and those I love, or noticing the poor performance of others. –StrongDave, needing prayer to embrace his weakness/neediness/dependency so he’ll be freshly in love with Jesus, and others, especially the nonbelievers around him who are also addicted to being strong, but don’t see the bondage, the hell, of this addiction
