Have you ever felt like you've been jipped? Have you ever felt like someone gave you less than you deserved? Maybe it's when your friend says she'll invite you to her party but she doesn't. Or maybe someone else got the role you thought you should get. Or maybe your teacher gave you a D on a paper that took most of your weekend.We've all felt like this at one point or another. Most of the time we feel this way because we were expecting something and we didn't get it. It's times like these when you have to step back and assess the situation. We need to ask ourselves…

  • What was I expecting?
  • Why was I expecting it?

Often, we feel entitled to things and when we don't get them, we feel short-changed. It's part of our selfish human nature to feel this way. But the truth is that we don't deserve anything. Nothing in this world has our name written on it; it's all a blessing from God. We need to remember…

Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows. ~James 1:17
