Whenever I feel pressure,

that’s my human-wisdom influencing me. Whenever I feel peace that makes no sense for my stressful circumstances, that’s my Jesus and His Spirit at work in me — no agenda of my own, curious and expectant to see what He does NEXT in me, others, circumstances. Observer — not a competitor/judge, enjoying everyone just as we are, and everything just as it is, all according to His genius plan. Ahhh.

So, whadda I do when I’m freaked out? Eventually CONFESS, rather than trying harder to believe, surrender. And if I’m still freaked, there’s something more I can’t-yet see to CONFESS. Then I might ASK for the Spirit to open my eyes to see the TRUTH, good and bad, about me, others, circumstances. So I can CONFESS. Ahhh.
