Thank You, Jesus, for your total sovereignty

over everything and everyone.  So helpful when You give me grace to believe Your sovereignty afresh, because if You are not, it’s UP TO ME.  I don’t like the pressure of UP TO ME.  Independency is scary, stressful, makes me hurry, intense, failure-avoidant, pain-avoidant, suffering-avoidant, orphanlike, so I’ve got to succeed, with the weight of the world on my shoulders, weighing me down, motivating me to seek relief from my misery though idolatrous pursuits, to distract me from the pain of living in this Cursed world as an orphan/independent/confident-I-know-what’s-best, suppressing the scary, the stress, trying to focus on the positive, ignore the negative, or at least minimize the negative.  Too much.  Too scary.  Dowanna think about all that could go wrong.  Up to me.
