Have you ever prepared so well and done everything possible to succeed, but still find that you fall short or fail? This is when we scream for anyone to hear, "LIFE ISN'T FAIR". Why is it that we can do everything possible but still not achieve the desired result? Because we can prepare but the result is up to God and whether He feels that the result is in our best interest or not. Let's face it, if we always succeeded, we would never see the need for God. And believe it or not, not everything we want is necessarily good for us and in our best interest. And if we feel that all that we have is due to our own effort and abilities, then we would never see the need for God. And face it, we all need God.
Lord, thank You for giving me so much and help me to realize that no matter how much I have, it will never be enough without You.
