Sometimes, life can really throw some curve balls. If you have not yet found yourself in the arena, keep living sooner or later you will. For the believer here are words that give great consolation when I find myself going through a dodging session.
No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgement thou shall condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness is of me, saith the Lord.
Here I find that I am not exempt from facing problems, but I am given the promise of victory as an end result.
