The Biblical Remix – My Life
Job 30:1-31 – http://bit.ly/biblicalremixmylife
Job was the epitome of swag. He had property, money, and plenty of children. Then in one day, it was all taken from him violently.
After that, dude then had painful sores show up all over his body.
His boys came through and saw how jacked up Job was. They were speechless. All they could do is sit with him for seven whole days and not say a word.
Job had it so bad, his skin would scab, turn black and fall on the floor. His breath became atrocious, his wife was disgusted with him, he had fever, excessive thinness and was in pain day and night.
Even bums Job knew from back in the day, that nobody would listen to, they were now making fun of him and spitting in his face.
In the midst of his pain, this Mary J. Blige song played in his mind:
“If you looked in my life, and see what I’ve seen, You will see I’m so blue, Down and out crying everyday, Don’t know what to do or to say, If you looked in my life, and see what I’ve seen…”
Job’s life was jacked up. And the same is true for some of us. If we were honest, our emotional and/or spiritual lives are all over the place. We don’t have it all together.
Yet we persevere and stand. There are some days we are limping, some days we are crawling. Wherever you are, I encourage you to keep on the journey. Don’t give up and throw the towel in. Too many people have killed themselves or damaged their lives because they just “couldn’t take it anymore”.
Your life is precious. Your journey is precious. Keep the faith. Don’t give up. Stay fightin’.
PS – Job’s end was greater than his beginning. If you want to know how, peep Job 42.
