It feels WRONG

to be so dependent on You, Jesus, that I dunno yet where to eat lunch today, what to wear, when to do the things on my to-do list for today, which to do first.  DEpendency feels WRONG to my flesh, and to the world around me.  DEpendency is to be AVOIDED at all costs.  INdependency requires that I be confident-I-know-what’s-best, wise in my own eyes, leaning on my own understanding.  Feels RIGHT to my flesh.  Feels WRONG to be clueless-I-know-what’s-best.

— Dave McCarty, GospelFriendships, needing to be rescued from himself, by Jesus’ Spirit, so he might be returned — at least momentarily, to the bliss of DEpendency
