Murphy's Law Will End

Have you heard of Murphy's Law? It is basically a negative viewpoint that something will go wrong if it can, particularly at the worst possible times. For example, when you are late driving somewhere, you will get every red light. Or maybe you were thinking of Murphy from RoboCop the movie. A lot of bad things happened to him too. He never really had a law though—that I can remember anyway.

 What am I trying to say? In reality, I am trying to say nothing because no words are coming out of my mouth. I am typing; I am not trying to type because I am actually typing. Nevertheless, not entirely sure what "nevertheless" means, but it sounds cool, and I think it works here. So nevertheless, I brought up Murphy's Law because I think we should rebel against it. Yes, sometimes rebellions can be good, like in Star Wars

Obviously whoever created this fictional law was very pessimistic. Furthermore, I find Murphy's Law is relative. Who defines what can go wrong? It is only in the eye of the beholder, so this law is constantly changing for each individual. That seems more like an unlaw than a law to me, not based on real truth. I wonder if this law was created simply as a way to vent a frustration of circumstances, so it probably does not need to make sense.

 Maybe it is time to come up with a different law, something optimistic, that is actual truth. I do not see myself as naturally optimistic, but I believe we all can tap our optimistic roots. We could focus on the greatest sacrifice of all time that was done to save mankind from their evilness.

Star Wars and RoboCop is fiction; however, here is a little history lesson: You see, the first man rebelled against His Creator, which caused death and suffering to enter into the world and upon all mankind. Sadly, this rebellion was bad. We were eternally doomed to suffer apart from our Creator, but our Creator had plans before the creation of the world—the way to save us.

Rather than automatically thinking of Murphy's Law, which I find myself doing, how about we focus on something like, "Not everything can go your way, but Someone who loves you, died for you, and wants you to live eternally with Him with no more things going wrong." Does that seem weird to you? Does that seem amazing to you?
For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men, teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly in this present world, looking for that blessed hope and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Savior Jesus Christ, who gave Himself for us, that He might redeem us from all iniquity and purify unto Himself a peculiar people, zealous for good works. (Titus 2:11–14)
You too can be a part of this peculiar people living for Christ, realizing the many things He has done for us. "For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life" (John 3:16). This truth is from the Word of God, which never changes and promises an end to all of these things going wrong. The time of Murphy's Law on this earth is limited and will be utterly destroyed. Is that not something of which to rejoice as long as we are believers?
