I’m ALWAYS focused on the waves of my circumstances, instead of Jesus. The secondary things in my life have become primary, and the PrimaryThing has become secondary. Whyzat? Human-wisdom-reliance — my human-wisdom and the human-wisdom of others, especially experts. I’ve been snookered into believing a lie — that my life is UP TO DAVE, so I gotta fix myself. And others too.
When my eyes and thoughts are on Jesus — so the biggest deal in my life is my name being written in Heaven, I’m an observer, not a performer. A spectator, not a gladiator. Peaceful, not stressed. Enjoying everyone just as we are, and everything just as it is — all according to the genius plan of Jesus, curious to see how He directs me next.
There He is — behind him, and her, and everyone and everything. Ahhh.
— Dave McCarty, GospelFriendships, not a happy camper, except when freshly convicted of his unbelief in the sovereign reign of Jesus
