Day 353, left me a little bedazzled. I was stunned and confused about the injustice this life presents. “Good” people get hurt and individuals of a questionable nature glide through life unscathed from alteration. I know in our daily walk we are not to judge, so I will not. I will; however, ask the question- why does this happen?
The second I asked the question, I started to receive answers.
“Good” people may in fact be “Good” people in a “Bad” situation needing an alternate way to look at their current situation.
Maybe “Bad” happens to the “Good” people to open up a different avenue that was overlooked, which may have continued to be overlooked if things continued as were.
Maybe “Bad” things happen to “Good” people so that those “Good” people will use the “Bad” to make something good, so that the “Bad” thing(s) do not happen to another person. For example, look at all the different support groups established due to tragedy.
On the other hand …
Maybe a “Good” person may have the appearance of being “Good,” and internally be “Bad.”

The following scripture opens the door to understanding for me in times of anxiety caused by the fear of confusion-

"Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus."
So, although the world is filled with injustice and inequality, I know my God will balance the scales. I know my God will answer the questions that perplex my physical mind. I know through prayer and petition I will understand what I do not.
Therefore, what to me may appear to be an injustice may be a blessing in disguise and I will dwell in the following passage-
