Facing Unfair Treatment

I feel like I've been avoiding my blog recently since I feel like God hasn't brought something to share with you all. A lot has been going on and I've been going through so many feelings recently but just feel like I couldn't put them into words.

So finally I'm posting on here, I hope what I write can be of some encouragement to you.

Have you ever felt like life was unfair. People were unfair? Circumstances were unfair? People can't be trusted? relied on? no matter how hard you try it always is unfair?
.
This past week I had a pretty bad day due to a circumstance that seemed totally unfair. Everyone I talked to agreed with me and I know what I did was right, but in the end I still was accused wrongly when I tried my best and it was totally unreasonably strict and biased. I got so upset and angry over it and felt like I constantly was thinking about it. I didn't know what else to do but cry and get angry over the whole situation- I know- not the correct Christian response, but that is what I did. Part of me has handed over the situation to God and I keep telling myself "you did what was right and the other person has it on their shoulders now." But there is something inside of me that just can't just let it go. I keep the anger within me and I don't feel like letting it go since it hurts.

Maybe you have something that has happened to you this week, maybe something someone said to you hurt you so deeply you can't find anything within you to let it go and forget the wound. Some things feel like they are just "unforgivable" and are totally untrue or unfair we don't feel like the other person deserves to get forgiveness. But God forgives everyone and He is the One who created all of us. If He is willing to forgive us, shouldn't we too forgive? Forgiveness isn't for the other person only, it is mainly to relieve us of the hurts and pains. It is for our benefit.

Today, give over all your heart's issues. Your problems, worries, aches, and troubles and leave them with God. Go to Him and know that He is a fair judge. He sees your heart. He knows your intentions. He sees your hard work. Even when the world is unfair and prejudice, know that God is fair. He is just and trustworthy.


Colossians 3:25
For the wrongdoer will be paid back for the wrong he has done, and there is no partiality. 

I Corinthians 15:58
Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.

  3. Britt, I can relate to you as I too had a hurtful and unfair experience where it was hard to forgive the person and "let go". Thanks so much for your blog, Britt, and what you do!

  4. Yes life is unfair, and sometimes someone does or says something to you or about you that is false, hurtful, malicious and utterly cruel and somehow you end up getting the blame as well! Been there, read the book, wore the t-shirt and starred in the film many times! But, forgiving is also about you too, and letting go is the best solution in the end.

    I have struggled with an issue for many years and I am in the process of letting it go because it affects my outlook on life and the way I approach life. Only God can really heal us deeply and completely. Forgiving is part of the process, and believe me, forgiveness is not a word or a snap decision like choosing which desert to eat or which restaurant, it is a choice we make and then a process that will happen over time. Some people have lots to forgive.
