After a long trip into my childhood state down south, I return to our little home. My hubby and I are very happy to be back together. My mother is much better and I am trying to return to a regular sleep schedule.
Isn't it interesting how family changes over time.
I am blessed to know that my family members are all believers. We all love God.
But right now, we are in a hard place. I'm reminded of Job.
Remember how he chided Mrs. Job after his health was attacked by Satan?
Here are the verses that might jog your memory:
"Satan replied to the LORD, "Skin for skin! A man will give up everything he has to save his life. But reach out and take away his health, and he will surely curse you to your face!"
"All right, do with him as you please," The LORD said to Satan. "But spare his life."
So Satan left the LORD'S presence, and he struck Job with terrible boils from head to foot.
Job scraped his skin with a piece of broken pottery as he sat among the ashes. His wife said to him, "Are you still trying to maintain your integrity? Curse God and die."
But Job replied, "You talk like a foolish woman. Should we accept only good things from the hand of God and never anything bad?" So in all this, Job said nothing wrong.
Job 2:4-10 NLT
We here in this little family are all trying to figure out how to stand in solidarity against Satan in this trial.
I know what I am called to. It is not easy, but it is the wisest and the best for mine and others health.
And now we move and grow and stand and change and live and trust God.
May you find your strength in the knowledge that God is in the midst of the good and the hard things of life. He does not leave us alone. He knows what pain we are able to handle and He is worthy to be trusted.
Be strong in the LORD. It might look dim, but know that He is with you.
Love Him in the midst of the darkness. Love others in the midst of the trial.
Let us know in the comments below how life is rough, or tough, or good and jolly. We want to praise His name with you.
"The LORD gives and the LORD takes away. Praise the name of the LORD!" Job 1:21 NLT
Because He is the I AM, i am
Biff and I pray for you.
Thanking all of our members that have been so supportive during this confusing time. Your prayers and patronage are a blessing.
God is for us.
