... and life isn't easy or comfortable or effortless or fun all of the time. God never says that it will be any of these things. We may expect fairness or life to work out ideally and perfect for us but nearly everything in the bible states otherwise. God never says that "all things ARE good". He says, "... in all things God works for THE good ..." This not only supports the idea that things in life are not always good, but it reinforces the idea that "the good" is more important than "our good".
Lord, please help me remove the expectations and myth that my life is supposed to be easy, smooth, effortless and fair and help me to understand that when unfairness, hardtimes and trials come, that You will help those things to work for the good for Your Kingdom.
