Stop Your Pride!

Because that’s what it is. It is not humility to claim guilt before God.

Also, stop beating yourself up until you have been sufficiently punished for your infractions–STOP BEING LIKE GOD! What He did is bigger than what you did.

Finally, why are you going to put yourself under submission of being treated for SYMPTOM, when Jesus treats you for DISEASE? He killed you–crucified you–dead.

I could never sleep on those nights anyway, so a sugar high always seemed appropriate.
