Why can't I have easier, Jesus?

Human-wisdom -- mine and others, always tries to convince me that easIER would make me happier. And I'm gullible.


EasIER won't make you happier, Dave. In Heaven you'll have easy 24/7. Right now, I'm using harrrd, suffering, in your life, to disillusion you about the trustworthiness of human-wisdom. Your human-wisdom is the enemy of your happiness, causing you to be circumstance-dependent for your joy and peace. Your biggest need, Dave, is to be retrained to trust Me, instead of your human-wisdom, so you'll experience LIFE in this world, and have a faith that is contagious to the seculars around you. It is painful being retrained, but it's good-painful, healing-painful, and you will look back on this brutal time of your life, and thank Me profusely for the painful retraining. Just you wait.


-- Dave McCarty, GospelFriendships, who believes a little bit, but only when freshly convicted by the Spirit of his human-wisdom-dependency

Why do we view confession as negative? Because confession means failure, and failure-avoidance explains so much of why we do, when we do, how we do, living in denial of the EXTENT of our failures. W
