Stuff happens

Again I saw that under the sun the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, nor bread to the wise, nor riches to the intelligent, nor favor to those with knowledge, but time and chance happen to them all. Ecc. 9:11

We study and plan and prepare and still things go wrong. Interruptions and distractions. Machines won’t cooperate. Electronics crash. Traffic happens. People we love, or we ourselves, get sick or injured. The results are in and the news is devastating. The platitudes we try to apply to these situations to explain the “why’s” seem thin and weak. When things happen that seem cruel and unfair sometimes the best thing we can do is forget about what and why and just fall into WHO.

God I know that you love me no matter what is happening to me. I trust you are helping me even when I don’t see evidence of it. I believe in Your victory though I feel defeated by this specific circumstance.
