easier circumstances, better circumstances — I need a different Dave — a Dave content with Jesus and the circumstances He’s carefully crafted for Dave, needing nothing more, nothing different. So, why hasn’t Jesus given me easier circumstances? Because He’s using the harrrd, the suffering, to retrain me in a better way of living — from […]

it’s so helpful when I remember that I’m not ALONE, that it’s not up to ME to figgeritallout perfectly, and that my interpretation/understanding is not up to ME — that Jesus is totally sovereign over every detail of my life, including my biblical understanding. Ahhh, s’wunnerful to rest in the sovereign reign of my ShepherdJesus. […]
not the chief expert, chief accuser, chief knowitall, chief competent, but rather….the chief confessor. Humble. Not just on the outside, but also on the inside. The best leader finds his security in worthiness outside himself, which frees him to live and love self-forgettingly with reckless abandon. Jesus provides this alien worthiness to those wise enough […]
is what Jesus has for me, right now, in these present circumstances. NOOOO. My flesh thinks the BEST-case scenario is…easy…things going MY way, as judged by my flesh. Dave’sFlesh is confident-it-knows-what’s-best, but in reality, it dunno nuttin about what’s best for me, or others.

I’m like Oliver Twist in the orphanage — I want MORE. Jesus is not ENOUGH for me. I want MORE. I want BETTER. I DESERVE better. I feel ENTITLED […]
WHAT? Seems to me. And big failure is better than small failure. Whyzat? Because until you are freshly stripped of your own worthiness, you will not freshly treasure Jesus and His imputed worthiness. Worthiness-idolatry stands in the way of treasuring Jesus and His imputed worthiness. So, Dave. Are you saying I should TRY and fail? […]
when my reality is informed by my eyes and ears. But when my reality is informed by Scripture, my life is up to my SovereignShepherdJesus. I’m not MY problem, but His problem. It’s not MY reign, but His reign. Ahhh. So thankful for His growing me more-and-more aware of my INdependency, because Jesus-dependency is the pearl of […]
I need a different DAVE. My flesh imagines I would be happier with a different car. But I already HAVE a great car, and it hasn’t made me content. I need a different DAVE. A Dave who is CONTENT with the car he HAS, with the body he has, with the maturity he has, with […]
