When life throws you a curve
I had the opportunity to speak at a church for a friend of mine this weekend. The pastor was suppose to be there but his wife went to the hospital yesterday morning because she had not felt her unborn baby move in 2 weeks. Unfortunately, the baby died. Wow, that is tough. Life is tough. It doesn't work out the way we plan it to. People turn on you, our health suffers or people's we love, finances turn and families fall apart. Life often throws us a curve. Our world is changing rapidly. If you don't keep up with the changing times you get left behind. Life throws us a curve. I'm fortunate to have friends and family who love me and pray for me. When life throws me a curve I can count on them to be supportive. But even they can't make up for the pain and heartache I feel or even you feel from time to time. When life throws us a curve, the only person we can count on is God. Even when He doesn't seem to make sense. In Narnia there is a line about the Lion (representing God) that says he is tough but fair or something like that. It has been a long time since I read it. But I think that God is confusing. I don't understand why some of our prayers are answered the way we want and others are not. Even when we have the right motives. Life will throw us a curve, but God is good!
