Is what I find with Job's life.
Job 1 New International Version (NIV)
In the land of Uz there lived a man whose name was Job. This man was blameless and upright; he feared God and shunned evil. 2 He had seven sons and three daughters, 3 and he owned seven thousand sheep, three thousand camels, five hundred yoke of oxen and five hundred donkeys, and had a large number of servants. He was the greatest man among all the people of the East.
Job stood faithful in the eyes of God. The end of his life was blessed.
Job 42:12-17 New International Version (NIV)
The Lord blessed the latter part of Job’s life more than the former part. He had fourteen thousand sheep, six thousand camels, a thousand yoke of oxen and a thousand donkeys. 13 And he also had seven sons and three daughters. 14 The first daughter he named Jemimah, the second Keziah and the third Keren-Happuch.15 Nowhere in all the land were there found women as beautiful as Job’s daughters, and their father granted them an inheritance along with their brothers.
16 After this, Job lived a hundred and forty years; he saw his children and their children to the fourth generation. 17 And so Job died, an old man and full of years.
Job had it all, lost it all and gained far more at the end of his life.
Isn't it true that the in-between some of our years brings us heartbreak, sorrows, struggles but joys, blessings and new beginnings. We have so much to gain in a new day of life. Each of our choices not only affect us but others. Job made a decision to love God with all his heart and while tested, he stood for God. His struggle became real through pages of the Bible. I hope that each of us can stay strong through out our new day. Through it all, I've learned to trust the Lord with all my heart. God is faithful to those faithful to him.
Things happen to each of us. We have a choice to become a better person or bitter. I hope you choose better. I do care and my prayers continue for you, your family and friends.
