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.

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.

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.
