Thank You, Jesus, that I dunno what to do,

about _______ and about ______. My human-wisdom HATES me not knowing, feels like I OUGHTA know, like I’m ALONE and in CHARGE of my life. I don’t feel good about myself when I dunno. Seems WRONG to not know. I suspect I suppress feelings of being a failure. My human-wisdom LOVES when I KNOW what to do, make a decision, so it’s behind me. That’s when I feel like a WINNER. My human-wisdom is a greater influence on me than Scripture. Being a winner is EVERYthing to my human-wisdom.

Thank You, Jesus, for EXPOSING my human-wisdom-reliance to me, so I can CONFESS and be freshly sane. Forgive me for not believing that You are in charge of my life. Forgive me for not being curious/expectant to see what You do NEXT in me, others, circumstances. Ahhhh. Confession is the BEST. The starting place for fresh faith.

— Dave McCarty, GospelFriendships, who finds that being freshly dead to his human-wisdom, is even better than feeling like a WINNER to his human-wisdom
