Do you ever feel like the world must have it out for you? Everything that could go wrong, goes wrong. If you think it won't happen, it does. You plan for everything, except the thing that happens. The world tells us that we should anticipate failure and not be surprised when something worse happens. You buy a brand new car. Drive it home and boom. You try to take your new car out for a spin and reverse doesn't work. Ugh! You plan a cross country trip with a special stop at a luxury hotel for the 4th of July weekend. Reservations are made. Road trip is going great. You finally arrive at said hotel, only to find that the hotel is still under construction. Duh! Except. Yep! True stories. These situations might send us into a tailspin, ranting about how we were cheated or how things like this only happen to us. If it could go wrong, it just might. Yet ... we have the best weapon against adversity. We will have adversity, it's true, but when we can laugh, in spite of it, we will find peace. Murphy's Law. We may quote it, but I'm here to tell you that God's Law is so more true. God's Law is much more beneficial. Whatever is got your life spinning around can be stilled. In an instant. When adversity strikes, and it will, don't let it take you for a wild ride. With Jesus at the wheel, adversity doesn't stand a chance. Leave the gloom and doom philosophies for something better. We have Jesus. We can throw back our head, lift up our arms and laugh with pure Joy. Proverbs 17:22 MSG "A cheerful disposition is good for your health; gloom and doom leave you bone-tired."
