There is a lie out there, it permeates our first world minds, leaving a bitter taste whenever challenged. It is the lie of ease. Somewhere in our first world cultural mindset we decided that life should be easy, nothing bad will ever happen to us, and fairness is possible. Simply closing our eyes to the brokenness in the world and wishing it away. This is deadly poison. The moment actual life happens, pain happens, babies die, family leaves, abilities are lost, we are sent into a tail spin. This doesn't happen, yes it does. It happens thousands of times every day all over the world, and it sucks, it is painful and hard. Life is not easy or fair. But I believe that it can be good if only we can learn to live in the moments in between.
