Today was the first day of Vacation Bible School. This year I’m an educator in the preschool craft and play area.
The Bible point I taught today was “When life is unfair…God is good.”
While the children inundated me with stories of how their siblings got to stay up later or got to eat more cookies or bigger donuts, my mind was in another place. While the children’s laments of unfairness were justified in their eyes, they don’t hold a candle to the one I will write about in this post.
A close friend is recovering from a severe concussion sustained during a tragic accident at work last fall. Just recently she was informed that her employment had been terminated with no opportunity for her to even attempt to return to work.
How sad for her! How sad for all the families and children who will no longer have this amazing woman in their lives.
I know that God has plans for us that often differ from the ones that we may have. He takes us along a different path that leads to greater things in our lives in the future although the unfairness of a situation often overwhelms us at that moment in the present.
When life is unfair……God is good!
