a lot of the time, because the world, flesh, devil want me feeling alone, that it’s up to me to make my life work, leaning on my own understanding, being wise in my own eyes, as I attempt to engineer happiness for myself and others, solve the problems before me, make decisions, captain my soul, master my fate, as ShepherdDave.
But when the Spirit of Jesus graciously, lovingly, tenderly, convicts me of the sin of independence/shepherdness, I confess my sin and am restored to the bliss of created-dependency as DumbSheepDave. Ahhh. Tis so sweet to trust in Jesus. Tis so stressful to trust in Dave.
–ShepherdDave, needing prayer for fresh conviction of sin, so his joy and peace wow those around him, especially pre-believers, so they want what he has (please pray now)
