Jesus is undermining my trust

in my human-wisdom, and the human-wisdom of others, and it’s the best thing that’s happened to me since He converted me back in 1966, because I’m living and working more out of communion with Him than ever.  Ahhh.  But it’s harrrd to be retrained in a better way of living.  My human-wisdom HATES suffering/harrrd, and my human-wisdom and others’ human-wisdom are still huge influences on my life, so I NEED the suffering/harrrd, things not going my way, to snap me back into reality — not the reality according to my human-wisdom — informed by my eyes and ears, but the reality informed by Scripture that says Jesus is behind everyone and everything.  Ahhh.  ‘Tis so sweet to trust in Jesus.

— Dave McCarty, GospelFriendships, convinced that Christians — especially DAVE, need transformation if seculars are going to be drawn to an overflowing Jesus in Christians

    Thanks, Dave! This retraining IS harrrd – but Jesus is more stubborn than my flesh! Keep reminding us, please. And I absolutely LOVE that hymn! Oh for grace to trust Him more!
