The only Christians experiencing contentment

re Jesus-dependents -- Jesus is Lord of their daily lives, not their human-wisdom. So they feel no pressure, frustration, discouragement, because they are curious/expectant to see what SovereignShepherdJesus does NEXT, in them, others, circumstances. No AGENDA of their own. Amazing peace and joy regardless of circumstances. Because human-wisdom is the enemy of happiness.


How can I become more Jesus-dependent? I need unusual self-awareness so I can TELL when I'm human-wisdom-dependent, so I can CONFESS. Ahhh. Huge burden weighing us down, to walk around with unrecognized-and-therefore unconfessed sin. How can I get more self-aware? Pay attention to my thoughts, feelings, reactions as I go through my day, ESPECIALLY when I'm alone.


Surrounding seculars are compelled by the contentment -- the Jesus, in Jesus-dependents.
