When Life Isn’t Fair!

One of the common phrases people use is, “Life Isn’t Fair!”  Think for a moment about your own life — those times when you realized that life wasn’t fair. The One that can carry your through life’s unfairness is Jesus and through His Hope! His power, His strength, His Love, will put it all into perspective for you! Why? Because it’s not over for you. Just remember In Jesus, if you’re a born-agin believer we have the promise that one day, we will no longer have to experience life’s unfairness, pain & suffering, because we will be enjoying eternity in Heaven. If you have been handed a tough life or tough experiences, turn it around by giving your life completely to Jesus! Remember, it’s not the end of the story. It will get better. Trust God. TAKE HEART. 

“For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal weight of glory that far outweighs them all.” ~ 2 Corinthians 4:17

We’ll always face the inequities of life. The big issue is this: how are you and I going to face the unfairness of life and not give in to bitterness? I think it all comes down to looking to Jesus and trusting in Him and His perfect will, even while admitting that life is very perplexing. Remember how unfair life was for our Savior it took the most unfair act in history, the execution of Jesus, to satisfy divine justice in a world full of injustice. That event made it possible for the least deserving of all-a convicted thief on a cross next to his-to gain an eternity of undeserved happiness. One day the scales of justice will not only balance, but they will be weighted in our favor, all for our good and God’s glory. she is no better than that thief on the cross. There was nothing “fair” about Christ paying the penalty for our sins. We don’t deserve such mercy.

Let me urge you to read this passage today: Philippians 2:1-18. It’s a classic description of how Jesus dealt with the unfairness of life. I want to face the injustices of life as my Savior and Lord did — by being obedient to the Father. And then thank the Lord Jesus for how His submissive life resulted in new life for you.

As we let the mind of Christ dwell in us, we can face the truth that life truly is not fair and yet still be at peace because Jesus helps us overcome anything — including life’s injustices.

About Jesus is a safe harbor

I am a follower of Jesus. I am a grateful delivered woman who was once an addict, but now God has restored me and renewed me. I have been redeemed and remade by our Creator through salvation of His Son, Jesus Christ! I just want to share what God has done in my life that you may have the opportunity to experience the same joy He gave me. I give God all the glory for everything in my life for I couldn't accomplish anything apart from Him. If ye shall know the truth, the truth shall set you free, John 8:32. He puts people in my life that help me and gives me the opportunity to help another. I am never surprised by his love and blessings. God has placed a confidence and love in myself that I have never had before… so "Thank you God".. for the many True Blue Christians you have put in my life and for all the blessings you bestow on me daily. I have not come this far without lots of prayers and the help and love of my true friends and family and I thank you God for those special people in my life. You are 100% my Savior! I will forever have your name on my lips. I realize now with lots of prayer and reading of the Word… that all the answers were here for me and I never asked the questions. Although I still struggle daily with other life’s daily cards that are dealt, I have an attitude now of “NO MATTER WHAT “– I will praise You, Lord~~~through my storms and my triumphs! I have much more to share and would love to answer any questions anyone may have for through all my trials what has come to be is that I want to help others to see what I didn’t see and hopefully prevent the same hurts, guilt, shame and woes that I had to deal with and give them the best gift of all… JESUS! I believe it's important that we know who we are in God ... We are a one of a kind and God has made us like no other for a purpose- His purpose. Yes, bad things happen and yes, we make poor choices, but we don't have to continue to make them. God's mercies are new each day. Once we realize, know and most importantly believe who we are in Christ, that we are a child of God, we are not an accident, and whatever the circumstances before us each day no matter what they are... God gives us the choice and the power of Him to choose right and live right. We no longer have to live in the past, but in the present and look with expectation to the future with God by our side guiding us and directing our steps. He is our strength and our hope needs to reside in Him. Let his power and love work in your life today and see that life does not have to be the way you are living now. He wants to help you, but you have to let him. He can't make us come to him, he is not lost - WE ARE! Please share this blog with others to encourage them for the glory of God!
