Life has curve balls that push us away from home plate. Unexpected, unnerving, untimely. They just happen.

In pastoring I have stood by families at one end of the hospital and listen as they tell loved ones goodbye, and then walk to the other end of the hospital to celebrate a new born with a happy mother and father. That is life.

One moment joy bubbles over.

Another moment grief crashes in.

Sunshine and rain blow by in the sky. They both happen over and over again.

So how do we prepare for life's curve balls? It isn't easy. They happen to all.

What do you do when your car engine blows up and you don't have money to repair it. Or you have a vehicle accident and are severely injured and people are counting on you to make a living? Or you get a bad doctor's report? Or you get laid off at work? Or friends forsake you? Or someone tells lies about you?

The list goes on and on. What do you do?

Here is the beginning point. Trust. You trust. Wait. And rise in new strength.

His mercies are new every morning for great is His faithfulness.

So trust Him today if a curve ball has come your way. He will not fail.
