My third grade teacher
Mr. Wright always use to say
(usually after I had complained about a grade)
Well Tilly, "Life isn't fair."
And as I have experienced a little more of life
that he's right.
Well. Kind of.
There's something that he left out,
and I learned this valuable lesson my freshman year at BYU.
I was in my mission prep class and on page 52 of "Preach my Gospel"
"All that is unfair about life
can be made right through the Atonement of Jesus Christ."
Over the past couple of years
I've thought about this truth multiple times.
When someone questions
God's Love, or Power,
the age old question,
"Why do bad things happen to good people?"
Or, "How could God let this happen?"
It's because he has already put a plan in place
to take care of all of that.
A perfect plan.
A beautiful endless plan
that saves all of us from the "unfair."
So sometimes when life is hard,
when it seems like everyone is happier
or better off,
when it seems like life just isn't worth it,
and that waking up is the worst part of the day.
The Atonement of Jesus Christ covers and erases
everything that is unfair.
Heavenly Father knows our circumstances
and loves us.
He wants what's best for us,
and in the end that's what we'll get.
