UNFAIR THINGS ~
They happen to each of us but in different ways
What about receiving a doctor's report at the age of 36 that you have Parkinson's Disease? You go from having a great job and making great money, to disability. You trust the Lord, but you sure wonder why God is this happening? I know the person this is happening to and he says that he knows God is able to heal him. He holds on for a miracle that only God can give, but it's just not fair.
Isaiah 40:31 New International Version (NIV)
but those who hope in the Lord
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint.
IT'S NOT FAIR ~
When things happen that don't make sense to our brains.
Why the fire? Why the illness? Why the loss of a job? Why the loss of a life? Why's of life may never be understood. Sometimes we must put the why aside and just trust the Lord. You are right, it's not fair. Nobody like the hard stuff to happen. It might feel too hard to bear, but God will renew your strength! I hold tight to the words in the Bible and gain strength from hard things. I can choose to become a better person over things and through things, or grow bitter.
The Bible says that we can soar on wings like eagles, run and not grow weary, walk and not be faint. It takes a determined mind to hold onto God. Hard stuff and good stuff happens to each of us. Calling upon the name of Jesus in prayer, begins a communication. Turn all your wonder over to God and allow him to renew your strength often takes a little time. You sometimes need to purpose good thoughts and good outcome of things.
I MUST GO ON ~
No matter what the report is, God is still able to help us in our lives.
I never want to make light of a subject and my heart breaks for people who hurt. There are people who must face the hardest things of their lives. A new normal is not always easy but it happens to us. I was 18 years old when my dad suddenly died inside our bathroom at home. I will never forget what I saw that day and hearing my mother cry so hard. I remember saying this, "it's not fair that my dad died". I was right, it wasn't fair but it happened.
God gave his only son for you and me. Jesus died for our sins and what if he said, "It's not fair". Yet, Jesus trusted his father's plan and life continues to unfold for us generations later. It was not fair that Jesus died and that God gave his only son for our mess ups, but it still happened. His love has proven to be greater to me than ever. Through it all, I've trusted God and I know he is able. It becomes time to let the unfair things of life. It is how we deal with it that makes the difference. Choose to serve the Lord with all your heart. I have seen miracles and I believe big in God helping through whatever I face. Somethings of life will not change and we learn to breathe again.
We live in a world of people doing crazy things more everyday of life. Make sure you put on the full of armor of God daily and deal with things in a kind way. Nobody knows what this day will bring but God. Pray over yourself, your family and friends. I take prayer seriously and I pray over the readers of my blog daily, your family and friends too. God has brought me through too much to doubt his power of change. I'm also praying for people who see things that were hard and to help them not replay them int heir minds. Hard things are often hard to let go. God is a good God and will help each of us to face this day with courage, wisdom, strength, a deep breathe and so much more.
I totally understand the statement, "It's not fair". I choose to let go and let God begin again in my life. I hope you do too. We learn to live beyond the statement "It's to fair", and trust God with all our hearts.
