When life doesn’t seem fair!


As you’re reading this article I pray that everything is well with all.

Sometimes life doesn’t seem fair but then God never said that everything would be perfect. How do we cope with life’s distractions? Can worldly things bring a sense of peace? Can our friends? What about our families? The truth is that only God and his wonderful presence in our lives can bring lasting peace. Everything will not always go the way we would like. Jesus promises Peace! {John 14:27} In Jeremiah 29:11, God’s word tells us that he has thoughts of peace for all who trust in him. {For I know the thoughts I think toward you says the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, and to give you hope and a future.}

If we keep our focus on God we will have spiritual peace. Isaiah 26:3 tells us if we trust in the lord we will be steadfast in perfect peace.

Jesus says his peace is different than what the world gives. Doesn’t it make since to place your trust in the maker of peace?

One of my favorite songs is “Great is Thy Faithfulness,” and a part of one verse says, “morning by morning new mercies I see, all I have needed thy hand has provided Great is thy Faithfulness lord unto to thee.” God loves everyone, yes everyone and he desires a personal relationship with you. So let me ask you, do you have peace? Has your life been turned upside down because of circumstances beyond your control? Christ is the answer. He is the only way to have present and eternal peace. If you’re not a Christian, we invite you to accept Jesus Christ as your personal savior. Repent of your sins, for all have sinned and come short of the glory of God {Rom. 3:23}. In 1 John 1:9, the Bible says if we confess our sins he is faithful and just to forgive us of our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. Trust Christ today, make him the Lord of your life, you’ll be glad you did.
