Just as everyone else, I’ve resigned myself to staying at home rather than venturing out, appearing in public only when necessary. This season has been hard for most people, being we are a very active society. We don’t know the mind of God or why he decided this to be, but I’m sure he has a lesson in all of it. Do we curse God and die, as Job’s wife suggested for him to do, or do we continue to trust in God, and wait for the reward for standing firm in our faith? I’ve decided to count my blessings during this time of pause, and notice the things God has given me, especially when he has given me things that I never prayed for but longed for in my heart. It gives me confirmation that he knows me, and fulfills my desires, even without me asking. Stop dwelling on the negative, turn your heart to see your blessings.
Then his wife said to him, “Do you still hold fast your integrity? Curse God and die.” But he said to her, “You speak as one of the foolish women would speak. Shall we receive good from God, and shall we not receive evil?” In all this Job did not sin with his lips. Job 2:9-10
