A Story From the Land of Uz...

Job 1:1 English Standard Version (ESV)

Job's Character and Wealth
1 There was a man in the land of Uz whose name was Job, and that man was blameless and upright, one who feared God and turned away from evil.

Job 1:21English Standard Version (ESV)

21 And he said, “Naked I came from my mother's womb, and naked shall I return. The Lord gave, and the Lord has taken away; blessed be the name of the Lord.”

...for all who are feeling like they may also be from Uz.  Hang on, child of God, hang on.

Job 8:21English Standard Version (ESV)

21 He will yet fill your mouth with laughter,
    and your lips with shouting.

God Gave His Word

A woman in China receiving her copy of the Scripture

John 1:1-2 English Standard Version (ESV)

The Word Became Flesh
1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was in the beginning with God.

Because my mother kept it, I still have my first Bible, coverless but with the presentation page intact.  It was given to me on my 11th birthday.  It once had a black zipper cover and my name embossed in gold.  At least I think it did.  Because it seems now like I've always had a Bible my memory may be flawed.  In church this morning, I read from my Bible app on my phone.  I've been blessed.  This photo of the woman in China moves my heart to cherish the Holy Word of God, a most precious gift, the very breath of God.

Go Out and Shine

Matthew 5:16 English Standard Version (ESV)

16 In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that[a] they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.

It's morning and I must ready myself for work.  I'm not feeling very bright.  Will I shine today for my Lord?  I pray that it may be so.  May my life reflect His in all that I do.  It's time to shine.

You Are the Sun - Sara Groves
