Today I’ve been crabby.
Like epically crabby.
And today even started with a two-hour snow delay.
Although the snow made me crabby.
All day I’ve been thinking I don’t want to blog about thankfulness. I have NOTHING to be thankful for today. Plus I’m just content to sit in my non-thankfulness. Can I just complain today? Just today? Please? And eat sugar. I really want to eat sugar.
While I argued back and forth with the rational side of me, I finally decided that crabbiness and non-thankfulness won. But then I realized that’s what I can be thankful for.
So today I’m thankful that sometimes it’s okay to be crabby and non-thankful. I’m thankful that I serve a God who understands when my hormones get the best of me and for some reason I wake up irritated. I’m thankful that even when I’m spiraling out of control and eventually decide that world hunger and AIDS are my fault, I’m still loved extravagantly. I’m thankful that there is no condemnation in Christ. And that verse has no exceptions.
It’s not no condemnation in Christ except when you’re not worshipping with a thankful heart.
It’s not no condemnation in Christ except when you’ve really screwed up.
It’s not no condemnation in Christ except when you’re just too far gone.
It’s not no condemnation in Christ except when you question.
It’s just no condemnation in Christ. Period. The End.
And that’s what I’m thankful for today.
oh and ps. I’m a tiny bit less crabby now. But still crabby.
