Impossible to thank Jesus
for the harrrd, the suffering, the “negative”, in my life, when I feel ALONE and in CHARGE. When I’m confident-I-know-what’s-thankable, and what’s not. Only when I believe Jesus is totally in charge of me, and totally loving me, when I’m curious and expectant to see what He does NEXT, in me, others, circumstances, can I thank Him for everyone just as we are, and everything just as it is. I only believe like that, when the Spirit has freshly convicted me of my feeling ALONE and in CHARGE — wise in my own eyes, leaning on my own understanding. No credit to DAVE. All glory to Jesus.
