Solving tough problems without Jesus,

is my forte. I love solving easy problems. Thing is, the tough/complicated problems cause me to obsess over solutions, which brings unnecessary stress into my day. Pride, not humility. INdependence, not DEpendence. Human-wisdom-dependency, not Jesus-dependency. My life is so-delightfully easy when I function as a Jesus-dependent, curious and expectant to see what Jesus does NEXT, in me, others, circumstances. Weight of the world off of MY shoulders, and onto Jesus. Ahhh.

So whadda I DO when the Spirit freshly opens my eyes to see my human-wisdom-dependency, making my life unnecessarily harrrd? CONFESS. Ahhh. Tough-problem-solving is actually FUN when I'm looking to Jesus to lead and guide me.
