God’s commands to us are actually given to the life of His Son in us. Consequently, to our human nature in which God’s Son has been formed (see Galatians 4:19), His commands are difficult. But they become divinely easy once we obey.Been an ass about obedience; all too easily seduced by less-wild lovers than Him. Sin is hard to shake, yet I’m encouraged that the life of Christ in me is the source of true obedience. I know how things turn out otherwise.
–Oswald Chambers, My Utmost for His Highest (13 May, “The Habit of Keeping a Clear Conscience”)
An e-mail in my work inbox this morning helped my day start all wrong. Done nothing that I’d hoped to do today; haven’t even posted this entry that I started at 7:00. If I tended to get headaches, I’m sure I’d have a whopper now. Instead, I just get more angry and scary. Tonight’s show should be fun, even if coordinating my friends is like herding cats.
Memo to the world at large: I’m doing everything I can. Really.
