We were asked to write about a time when we felt like we had gotten the short end of the stick...when we thought that someone else got something good while we had to deal with the loss of something we wanted. I was able to think of this pretty quickly. I realized that I am still hanging on to feelings of unfairness and being cheated by God for something that happened over a year ago. I realized that I had never written it down and really hadn't faced it. It was refreshing to really be honest with myself and with the Lord, and I was encouraged that in this church journey I wanted to really know what assumptions about God I had gathered along my faith journey. Maybe this is one. Maybe I feel entitled. How refreshing to face this and start moving forward.
I peeked ahead for tomorrow and I am challenged to write the story about this time when I felt unfairness from the other person's point of view. Interesting challenge.
