No matter how strong you get, you can’t keep bad things from happening.

No matter how pretty you get, you can’t keep him from leaving you.

No matter how educated you get, you cannot avoid failure.

No matter how fast you can run, you can’t outrun your past.

No matter how rich you get, you cannot avoid the feeling of emptiness.

No matter how organized you get, you cannot always keep life from spinning out of control.

No matter how sexy you get, you cannot keep him from cheating.

No matter how successful you get, you cannot avoid disappointment.

No matter how involved you get with your children, you cannot guarantee their happiness or success.

No matter how savvy you get, someone can always pull the wool over your eyes.

No matter how low you get, God will never leave you or forsake you.

There is only so much we can control in our lives. The rest is just an illusion of control. We do not know what tomorrow will bring us, or even what could happen in five minutes. But if we lean on the Lord and stay in a relationship with Him, we will never be alone, defined by our past, or our worth determined by our performance.

No matter what, when we believe, we are children of God.

So be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid and do not panic before them. For the LORD your God will personally go ahead of you. He will neither fail you nor abandon you. (Deuteronomy 31:6)
