are thank-ers about evathang, because they’re content to be clueless-about-what’s-best, dunno what’s thankable and what’s not, trusting their SovereignShepherdJesus to know, and trust that He’s behind everyone and everything, so they can relax and enjoy the ride. No frustration, discouragement, anxiety. Problem is, this happiness doesn’t last long, and depends on the convicting work of the Holy Spirit. Happiest Christians get zero credit for when they are happiest Christians. All glory to Jesus.
By contrast, we circumstance-dependent-for-our-happiness Christians feel all alone, feel the pressure of our lives being up to US, just like our atheist friends. We do not experience the benefit of Jesus in this life, except when freshly convicted of the sin of INdependence.
