Bitter or better?

Can I just say that Job's strong and fearless faith is what I want.

He was such a GOOD man. 

Follow along at Job 1-2

(By the way, this is the Bible I have and I love it!)

Job had...

7 sons
3 daughters
7,000 sheep
3,000 camels
500 yoke of oxen
500 donkeys
A large number of servants

He had a lot of children, animals and servants!

The Lord and Satan had a conversation about Job and how there was not one person on earth as blameless as him who fears God and shuns evil.

Satan believed that if everything he had was taken away he would curse the Lord.

Didn't happen. 

He lost everything!

Still Job worshiped the Lord and said...

"The Lord gave and the Lord has taken away; may the name of the Lord be praised."
~Job 1:21


Then, Satan and the Lord spoke again about how Job continues his integrity.

Satan believed that if Job's body was harmed, then he would curse the Lord.

Still, it didn't happen. 

Job had painful sores head to toe.

Even his wife was shocked that he wasn't cursing God.

"Job replied, "You are talking like a foolish woman. Shall we accept good from God, and not trouble?" In all this, Job did not sin in what he said."
~Job 2:10

So true! 

We are expected to have good and difficult times. I believe that during troubles is when our faith can be strengthened. If we only had good and no trouble, how could we strengthen our faith? 

We can choose to become bitter or better during those troubles. I want to choose to become better!

Continue to read Job, it's good!

A beautiful song!

Hey friends!

1.) You need to watch the video above!

It is an AMAZING video on YouTube posted by this lovely young lady named Molly Kate Kestner. It is called "His Daughter." I won't give away any of the details but you need to watch it! She tells her life's story through a beautiful song. What an amazing testimony she has! It brought tears of joy to my eyes. I pray for that beautiful young lady to continue following the Lord's big plan for her life! Her voice is going to take her far! Check out the rest of her videos, too.

Oh and she'll be on Good Morning America tomorrow May 14th. :)
