When Life Isn’t Fair

When Life Isn’t Fair

Today I read this excellent piece about what faith can look like in the hard times – for the writer it was the pain of infertility – everyone’s pain is different but it’s still very painful and the trials of life can challenge our coping skills and test our faith –

“Faith doesn’t always look like miracles and resoluteness and parades of victory down the street. Sometimes faith looks like getting out of bed every day. Going to work. Showing up. Still reading your Bible when it feels like an empty and futile routine. Still lifting your hands in worship, even when tears stream down your face at the same time. Still talking to God, because you know He’s there, even if you don’t feel Him – or want Him. Still coming to God when all you can do is cry and pound your fists on His chest.”
