“You might as well tell God what you think. He already knows it anyway.”

Infatuation disrupts routine. Demands priority. Consumes and magnifies. Compromises plans. Knots in your stomach. Erases rationality. Seductively whispers that anything is possible.
Poison to wisdom. Toxic to logical. Infatuation bites and kills and I guess that means I’m dying.
If we want to let the river of His justice flow through us, we have to arrive aware of how prone to superiority we are, how prejudiced we are. We must examine our motivation and presuppositions in the light. What window am I looking through when I look at others? What window am I seeing myself through? I know my tendency is to think I am needed. It is a difficult but necessary exercise to continually spend time asking Jesus to mercifully guide us as we attempt to walk with people in wisdom and humility.
God is not made manifest in our ability to “fix” or “heal” or “solve” anything. He has not cast us as the heroes. He is made manifest in our humility and in our own need to receive healing. When I can see my own weakness and pride and my need for grace and healing I am left in a position of having nothing to offer …
And you know what?
When I have nothing to offer, Jesus shows up.”
