How do we do this, God?
I have sat in front of a computer for the past 7 hours straight trying to get a few projects done. I've not opened one of those projects cause I don't want to. I've shimmered and skidded and surfed the internet. Now, I'm asking what's wrong with me. A similar default pattern of mine. I avoid things too difficult for me cause I can't do it well, perfectly. It's fear---fear of failure, fear of rejection. I can't do it as well as you can, so I don't do it at all. I even think it will take too much time from me, so I don't even start.
What encourages me are these thoughts from Crabb about Galatians:
"It's what's happening in you that matters, not what's happening to you. My Son has set you free to make choices that will release you from your compulsions. Only when you see deeply enough into your heart to recognize the corruption beneath the compulsions will you discover freedom."
PRAYER FROM PSALMS
"Search me, God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting." Psalm 139:23-24.
