Why do we THANK Jesus for the harrrd in our lives?

Because we hope He'll change our circumstances to EASY? No. Because He COMMANDS us to. Whyzat? Because He knows that only THANKers experience the benefit of His sovereign reign in their daily lives, and that the happiest Christians are THANKers -- curious/expectant to see what Jesus does NEXT in them, others, circumstances, experiencing the other-worldly peace that has nothing to do with circumstances.

Problem is, our human-wisdom and the human-wisdom of others, has us convinced that it knows what's thankable and what's not, so we Christians go through our day functioning as atheists, without the benefit of Jesus in THIS life. Atheists don't see any difference between us and them, except maybe for our superior vibe.
