This is a place of ME. This is a place where I will let the walls down and be honest. Joys and stories or tears and heartbreaks, they will all be here. Devotionals to poems, my heart is open to you. I will love well. I will love you and honer you by allowing you into my brokenness and the truth that God has reviled to me. This is a place of Me. Continue if you dare ;)

Teasting

Every one looks at Job in the Bible and says "man poor guy look at what he lost and the pain he went through!" God looked at Job and said "he can handle it, he is my child and his heart belongs to me."

If you read the story you will see that before satin was able to even touch Job he had to ask premistion. Every step of the way he had to keep going back to God and ask if he could do anything else to hurt one of God's servants. He is like a little kid that has to ask every time he wants a cookie!

And yet God still let Job go through all that pain.

WHY!?!?!

Because God KNEW that Job could handle it and would not turn his back on him. Even with every one around him saying "Job! It would be better to curse God and die than to live!" Job shook his head and knew that there was a reason for everything. In the end God blessed Job and gave him MUCH more than he had before!

So let's put this in today's scope. What ever your going through, it's not God turning his back on you. It's not that your getting punished for something bad you had done. Maybe God is preparing you for something or teaching you something. Just think about it. NO bad thing comes from God. BUT, God has to give premision for it to happen. God knows just how much you can handle. He won't give us more than we can take. So if your thinking about giving up.....

STOP!

God has a plan for your life and he will not forsake you. Grab his hand, ask for help, and don't lose your faith, and I know things will get brighter.
