Though this is a story from the Bible, I do hope it edifies my other friends and readers out there :)
So in the bible, there was a man called Job.
Now Job had EVERYTHING. In fact, I think he is very much like Will Smith
Oh, but most importantly,
One day satan came to God, and challenged that he could make Job curse God's name.
God took on the challenge and He allowed all kinds of things to be put upon Job.
Job's possessions got stolen, all his kids died, his house fell apart, even his wife left him.
but, not once did Job curse the name of God.
Finally satan (who was running out of ideas) infected Job with leprosy
And again, not once did Job curse the name of God.
After some time, Job starts to question God
"why me?!??!?! Why are you letting this happen to me??"
And God replies
"Because I am God"
And though most of us would reply *sjkdgfskdjgf*
Job chose to say
"Fine then, Praise be to you"
And right there, the battle was won.
God was so happy with Job that He gave Job everything and even more back to him!
I try to relate this story to my life whenever I can. I try to remind myself to praise the Lord in times of my troubles. And even now, though I feel rather crappy, Blessed be your name Lord, you've got beautiful plans ahead for me.
Now religion aside, do you give thanks for everything that you have?
Even in your bad times?
