Fair; what is fair? It's not really for me to judge what is fair. God be the judge of all. I do believe that prayer still works today, for healing, blessings and to bless others. When we have a victim mentality life doesn't seem fair because not everything is in our control. That being said there is a lot we can control.
You are the maker and breaker of your destiny. No one is going to take charge of your life like you can. So get after it and make a fair life for yourself, your family, your friends and the world. Leave a legacy behind like no one has done before. You can become a champion in whatever you set your mind to do.
I returned, and saw under the sun, that the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, neither yet bread to the wise, nor yet riches to men of understanding, nor yet favour to men of skill; but time and chance happeneth to them all.
