Thank You, Jesus, that I don’t have

the power to change myself into a thanker-for-the-harrrd, nor do I have the power to change others, though you know how much I wish I could.  Thank You for convincing me that what revival looks like in our day, is Christians so full of You that we are contagious thankers-for-the-harrrd.  Thank You that it seems-to-me impossible for any believer to become a thanker-for-the-harrrd unless s/he has sovereignty-awareness going through the day.  Thank You that today we believers are seed sown on thorny soil that does not reproduce.  Thank You that we struggle bigtime in being curious/expectant to see what You do NEXT, in us, others, circumstances, to change us for our good, Your glory, and the expansion of the Kingdom.  Thank You for Your genius plan, Your Grand Story, that You created from before the beginning of time.  And thank You for the other-worldly peace we experience when Your Spirit freshly convicts us of the sin of INdependence/confidence-we-know-what’s-thankable-and-what’s-not.
