  • When do we most often cry out to God?
    Usually it is in time of great need or distress. It often happens when we have had a personal loss, financial loss or perhaps a death or illness.
    Belief in God during hard times is a normal human attribute. I inherently believe even atheists, deep down, realize this whole thing isn’t one big mistake and that God does exist.
    It is certainly fine to call out to God when we are in distress, but how important is it for us to do the same during good times, too?

  • The book of Job is truly an amazing story.
    I often wonder how people say the Bible isn’t true or that it’s been changed or man-made.
    Such rich stories are hard to fathom being anything than other than God’s holy word in my opinion.
    I try and relate the plight of Job to my own life.
    How many times have I experienced failure or loss or problems in general and asked God why me?
    Job was a devout servant of God.
    He was powerful, successful and had many possessions and a large family.
