One of the things I say over and over again is that Life Isn’t Fair. Today I spent some time in prayer for two individuals. One of which I don’t know and will likely never actually meet his family but I, along with a number of other Christ followers were asked to pray for this boy who is in a coma due to a swimming accident.
The other is my sister’s boyfriend. This is a man I have met and spoken with, spent time with and heard countless stories from my giddy sister sharing about the fun times they have spent together in all sorts of activities. Both of these men are hanging on to the thin line of life, supported by machines and the love of family and friends.
It isn’t fair. Why is this happening? Why, when my sister finally found true love and happiness why has he been pulled into this place? I was angry and begging, pleading with the Lord to save these two men. In the midst of my discouragement I clicked on my sister’s boyfriends facebook page and found a song she placed there on his wall. Upon listening to this I broke. Not just because of the lyrics but because The LORD is my shepherd I shall not want. The LORD is my strength. If He is my strength and my shepherd is He not also the same for all His children? God is working in the lives of many through these situations. He allows us to lean on Him, to look to Him and to trust and believe.
I will lift up mine eyes to the mountains, from where shall my help come? My help comes from the LORD, who made heaven and earth. Psalm 121:1-2
Life isn’t fair. It was never intended to be fair. This is a consequence of sin and an avenue that we can use to follow Him or to turn away in anger.
It is my choice to follow Him, to continue to cry out to Him and to trust that He hears and will answer.
