This is only for Christians in rugged circumstances.

I feel ENTITLED to easier

when I have fresh suffering on top of extended suffering. Unless. I’m freshly convicted by Jesus’ Spirit of being confident-I-know-what’s-best, wise in my own eyes, leaning on my own understanding. Then, it’s, “Give me whatever is best, Jesus. Don’t give me the easy my flesh demands. I believe a little bit that You’re in charge, know exactly what you’re doing, love me immeasurably, are worthy of my trust, but help my unbelief, and please forgive my unbelief.”

Bigtime sufferers are frequent strugglers to believe. And our flesh HATES weakness, HATES us struggling. If everyone else were bigtime sufferers, it’d be easier. It’s pert-near impossible to not feel ENTITLED when others seem to have easier, normal.

— Dave McCarty, GospelFriendships, a struggler to believe, especially when he feels lousy
