In control? Not so much...

I just got through reading Scotty Smith's blog post from May 29. He talks about people like me: People who think they are self-sufficient; who don't need or want others' help. About "minimizing the possibility of disappointment and staying in control of my heart as much as possible." Oh, so true. But then he points out that Jesus was willing to wash his disciples' feet. That it is a picture of His being willing to wash away our fears & insecurities as well as our so-called "self-sufficiency." How we need to be willing to surrender to Him where we are. And that if we don't, we really don't understand why He came. Good stuff...just what I needed.
