Word Filled Wednesday

Your Know Focusing on the character of God, helps us to take our eyes off our circumstances.   Read Job 2:10

But he said unto her, Thou speakest as one of the foolish women speaketh. What? shall we receive good at the hand of God, and shall we not receive evil? In all this did not Job sin with his lips.

I ask you do you always praise God when bad things happen? Not to answer just think about it, we praise God to the fullest when something good happens to us, how many of us truly with an honest heart can say we do praise God for the bad things in our life. That is what Job is trying to tell his wife here.
You know for years I actually thought that the book of Job was all about Job, and how he came through various troubles in his life, and that is sorta true, but, what I see now in Job is the magnificent works of God, how much higher his ways are than our ways, and how much more power he has in all things, so many time we go through trials and problems to learn of God's almighty power, and how HE can help us out of any situation we may get our self into.

I just wish I could let go of all reasoning and any power I may have to do things, and let God take control of ALL things in my life, he does such a better job than we can. How about you, think you could give God a little more freedom to move in your life?

Have a Blessed day, ♥

What a wonderful reflection today, Barbara. During times of trial in my life I find myself turning to the book of Job to remember that there can be a purpose to my difficulties that I may not understand but I must always remember that God is God, and therefore all is well with my soul.

By the way, the little graphic in your header is absolutely charming!!

Beautiful post. I have always praised God when things are bad, even when I was a child. It's the letting go and letting God that I still struggle with. I am feeling an emptiness in my life right now that I have never felt, even when my beloved father passed away. I am pregnant, family-less where I am, and have 4 daughters I'm taking care of and schooling while all the while I am aching for my husband. It's hard to think that there's nothing I can do to ease my own pain, even though my brain knows better. Each day I pray to really hand it ALL over to the only one who will make it any better. <3
