The happiest Christians are thank-ers

about everything just as it is -- including the harrrd, and everyone just as we are -- including the irritating. Because they have sovereignty-awareness as they go through their day -- seeing SovereignShepherdJesus behind everyone and everything, all according to His genius plan.


Two kinds of unhappy Christians -- a) those who suppress their frustration/disappointment and push onward focused on their goals, and b) those who are more self-aware -- unable to live in denial of their frustration/disappointment, so they are miserable and KNOW they are miserable. Unhappy Christians only thank Jesus when things go their way. If then. They NEVER thank Him for the harrrd -- for the things their human-wisdom hates.


The unhappiest Christians have pseudo-faith -- we profess faith in Jesus, but live like atheists, feeling ALONE and in CHARGE of daily life. The Pharisees had nothing but pseudo-faith -- they imagined themselves obedient followers of God, when they actually followed their human-wisdom, and were blind to the extent of their sin/hypocrisy. Pseudo-faith has never been contagious to nearby seculars. The early Christians had real faith -- that was contagious to their neighbors, friends, relatives. The Good News spread like wildfire. Seems to me that we Christians today have pseudo-faith most of the time, not contagious-faith. We miss out on so much of the benefit of Jesus in THIS life.

I'd rather have Jesus-contentment

than anyyy-thing. Anything my human-wisdom thinks would make me happier -- feeling good from much-better health, much-more-normal eating, much-more-normal sleep, a much-better car. Howbout an EASIER

Just because God loves you unconditionally,

doesn't mean you love yourself unconditionally, or others unconditionally, or His genius plan for your life unconditionally. The sin of human-wisdom-dependency and its fruit -- self-contempt and othe
