I was scrolling through FB today and somebody wrote about Job and how he served God in the worst time of his life just like he did during the best. That just really got me thinking . . . I wish I were more like Job!!
I am going through one of my toughest journeys in life, but I am not alone.
Deuteronomy 31:8 New King James Version (NKJV)
And the Lord, He is the One who goes before you. He will be with you, He will not leave you nor forsake you; do not fear nor be dismayed.”
Through this journey I have met some awesome people. Lisanne gives me hope, Donna gives me courage, Dad gives me love, Mike gives me strength, Sierra and Cheyenne give me friendship, and Crystal reminds me God is with me. The list goes on, but I can’t list them all.
God tested Job in so many ways – he lost everything – his family, his wealth and his health, BUT he stayed faithful to God. Job did not curse Him, he worshiped Him. Job did not turn his back on Him, he prayed to Him. Job knew God was there with him and did not abandon him.
I hope to be that faithful!! I hope to stop getting angry and yelling and instead praise God for my health! I hope to stop complaining and pray for my blessings! I hope to stop being so self centered and lift up others to God! I hope to be a better listener; listening to God and my friends.
We will all go through hard times in life, but we get to choose how we will respond. I have chosen very poorly at times!! Instead of crumbling, getting angry at everything around us we could focus on the good things – people who love us, the beauty around us, laughter, and God!!
