This past week brought many Job-like moments....asking why this much time to be set apart with physical ailment?...then I remember what I learned when reading Job. He was so steady of mind even though his struggles seemed they would never end. Did you get as frustrated as I did just reading his plight throughout life? Everything was accepted then given back to God because Job loved Him so and knew His ways are the best. Job KNEW God would see him to the other side of suffering.
How could we exercise our "faith muscles" if we never feel the storms of life pulling against them, making them strain, making them slowly breathe through the pain of it all?
Through eternal praises, let His praises ring.
"Glory, hallelujah, I will shout and sing",
standing on the promises of God!"
but it makes me smile KNOWING and APPRECIATING how much she taught me about Jesus (without my knowing it at the time).
