There was once a time when I spent the majority of my days whining about how life wasn't fair.
No kidding. I did.
I was always comparing myself to those around me...feeling 'less than' and insignificant. At the very least it seemed to me that EVERYONE on the planet had MORE than I did in one way or another...
Somebody was smarter.
Somebody was cuter.
Somebody was richer...
More talented, gifted and wise.
Someone was taller.
Someone was thinner.
Someone was faster...
More compassionate, well liked and driven.
Someone else always seemed to win the race.
Grab the prize.
Take the bow.
Garner the praise.
And then one day, actually not so long ago, I realized I needed to get a clue!
Life isn't fair and it's never going to be fair. Not in any shape, form or from any direction.
I live in the inconceivable grace of God every day of my life. And that my friend...
Isn't fair either.
"For I know the plans I have for you." declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." (Jeremiah 29:11 NIV)
Love to you this awesome Sunday...
