Chapter-a-Day Job 2

Good Friday. [Job] told [his wife], "You're talking like an empty-headed fool. We take the good days from God—why not also the bad days?" Job 2:10 (MSG)

This past Sunday, the message in worship was about not being anxious and being content in every circumstance. Do you ever have those Sundays when you feel like you have a big target on your back? Like, the message was intended just for you? Yep, that was me. By the end of the service and after a nice chat with Wendy over lunch, I made a decision to approach the coming week with a renewed sense of contentment.

Then, it seemed like God allowed circumstances to push every one of my buttons at some point this week. Arrrrrrrrrggghhhh! Once again, Job's response to his own unbelievable circumstances provides me with a much needed reminder. There are certain things we learn only by walking through tough times.

We don't truly understand or experience the fullness of Easter joy unless we've been willing to descend through the depths of Good Friday.

One thought on “Chapter-a-Day Job 2”

  1. 9 His wife said, “Still holding on to your precious integrity, are you? Curse God and be done with it!”
    Those closest to us challenge us on tough issues sometimes. It seems that Christians aren’t real comfortable engaging non-Christians because they aren’t willing to risk relationship over tough issues. I feel that God calls me to engage, build relationships and share Christ. Am I willing to take a stand when the tough issues arise?
