I don't work really hard to impress people, at least not the way I used to in my teens and early 20's. I don't feel compelled to defend my positions and assert my authority the way I did in my late 20's and early 30's. In this decade, I am working at living out an authentic faith that manifests itself in love of all humanity. It is a tall order for someone with my natural disposition toward social retardation which pours out sometimes as misanthropy. But I am determined to win in the area of allowing the Holy Spirit to shape and mold my personality into something useful to Him. I have come to realize that white-knuckled, teeth-clenching obedience is one of the lowest forms of living. I crave the freedom and abundant life I am promised as one of Abraham's (grafted-in) seed. And I purpose to wrestle with my God until he blesses me. I know he wants me to win. I know full well that I dwell under a friendly sky.
