My mother always told my brothers and me growing up, "Life isn't fair."
This is a true statement. Another true statement is that you can indeed bust your head open! It's not a myth that mothers say to scare you! But that is another matter entirely…
Here is an example of the way that life isn't fair: Life catches you in your moments of weakness and ignoring all fighting etiquette, kicks you repeatedly in the stomach while you're down.
But in the midst of feeling this way, this is the Scripture that comes to my mind right away:
"Some trust in chariots and some in horses,
but we trust in the name of the LORD our God."
This song comes to mind also; I first heard while at Goshen College and have come to love because I identify with it so well:
How Can I Keep From Singing by Enya
And that song reminds me of this verse:
"Hear my cry, O God;
listen to my prayer.
From the ends of the earth I call to you,
I call as my heart grows faint;
lead me to the rock that is higher than I.
God has always been faithful to me, and has a pretty great track record for his faithfulness for that matter. I am confident in his faithfulness when I am able to find confidence in nothing else.
