When I feel lousy,

physiologically, it’s so much harder to be content, with myself, others, and the circumstances crafted by my ShepherdJesus.  I notice that I’m more-easily irritated, more competitive, more critical of others.  I want more.  I want to be better, do better.  Christian malcontent.  By contrast, I’ve noticed that when I feel good physiologically, it’s so much easier to follow Jesus, experience LIFE.  The physiological definitely has an impact on the emotional, spiritual.  But feeling lousy has been used of Jesus to help me discover the real me, so I’m not as blind to my sin, so I’m able to CONFESS it.  A gift from Above.  The nicest, sweetest, kindest thing He ever does for us kids of His, is to freshly convict us of the sin/idolatry we can’t see.

If you don’t want your kids to be prodigals,

ask Jesus to grow you as the chief confessor in the home, not the chief accuser, or the chief expert on all things Christian.  If you unwittingly give them the impression that you’ve got this Christia
