The world’s unfairness isn’t just a fleeting feeling, it’s a fact of life on this sin-cursed earth being magnified. There is real evil in the world, intended upon stealing, killing, and destroying us. Our enemy lies. When we feel we are surrounded by unfairness and evil, lies and manipulation …it’s because we are. It’s hard, and it can make us feel hopeless and helpless to stop it. Especially when our kids are hurting and there’s nothing we can do to make it right or ease the pain.
Distressed heartaches are akin to sun-soaked patches and chilled traces of worry on our foreheads.
Seasons of loneliness leave us vulnerable – we begin placing our trust in things or people other than God.
Jesus came so that we might have life, and have it to the full. (John 10:10)
