What helps me remember
the sovereignty of Jesus, is THANKing Him for everything in my day, especially the harrrd. Lotsa opportunities. He’s been retraining me to be a thank-er. It’s weird, being a thank-er for the harrrd. Other-worldly. Amazing how helpful it is, to see the suffering I face as coming from the hand of a loving SovereignShepherd to retrain me in a much-better way of living. DumbSheepDave style of living. Unconfident-about-what’s-best-for-me. Dependent on my SovereignShepherd — asking/thanking about evathang. Doing NOTHing on my own. Curious/expectant to see what He does NEXT, in me others, circumstances. Ahhh.
Too bad it doesn’t last long.
