When I crave easier circumstances,
I’m always confident-I-know-what’s-best, leaning on my own understanding, wise in my own eyes, not THANKful for the harrrd in my life that comes from the hand of my loving Savior to retrain me in a better way of living, and what’s worst — I’m circumstance-dependent for my joy and peace, feeling entitled to easier, claiming to follow Jesus, but having not the benefit of following Jesus, because I’m really following Dave’sFlesh. Unsatisfied with Jesus and His genius plan for me.
—CircumstanceDependentDave, who is only curious/expectant to see what Jesus does NEXT, in Dave, others, circumstances, when freshly convicted of his unbelief in Jesus’ sovereign reign over his life, so he might momentarily be CuriousExpectantDave, doing NOTHing on his own, enjoying the bliss of Jesus-dependency/Jesus-contentment/Jesus-humility, so the nonbelievers around him might experience the other-worldly love of Jesus
