it’s a BLESSing. Huh? And when He gives us what we want, it’s a CURSE. Huh? YES. The same Curse that humans have experienced since The Fall. When we get what we WANT, our flesh is stroked in confidence-we-know-what’s-best, so we pray for more of what we WANT, and work really harrrd to get what […]

so admirable, such a good thing. But. It’s a heavvvy load having an efficiency idol. Being a perfectionist about efficiency is just the WORST. Obsessing as much over minutia as I do really-big deals, is worse than being in prison. It’s a Curse imagining that I know what’ll make me happy. Those unbothered by such […]
have been carefully crafted by Jesus, for your good and His glory. When you believe this, you will be curious/expectant to see what He does NEXT, in you, others, circumstances.

feels like the weight of the world on my shoulders — alone, adultlike, UP TO ME, heavy, pressure. But Jesus offers me His radical yoke of DEpendency — light as a feather. Not radical for a child, but radical for an adult. Adults in this world are supposed to be INdependent, wise in our own […]
the world around me as Your world, Jesus, because it seems like OUR world — the world of us humans, where things are up to US, and in particular, the world of DAVE, where things are UP TO ME, to make good decisions, avoid regret, or worse — humiliation. Constant pressure. Except when Your Spirit […]
where I’m a spectator — an enjoyer of everyone just as we are and everything just as it is, not a gladiator like I am in Dave’s world — with the pressure to be better, do better, believe better, achieve, make a difference, establish my own worthiness, feel superior to others. When I’m living in […]
