The Lord Gives, the Lord Takes Away

01 May

Then Job arose, and rent his mantle, and shaved his head, and fell down upon the ground, and worshipped, And said, Naked came I out of my mother’s womb, and naked shall I return thither: the LORD gave, and the LORD hath taken away; blessed be the name of the LORD. In all this Job sinned not, nor charged God foolishly. (Job 1:20-22)

You may have read or heard about the recent storms and tornadoes that swept through areas of Arkansas. Below is a link to an article about families who experienced loss from those storms. Having a loose connection to the FamilyLife ministry, and because children were involved, we are especially touched by this tragedy.

    Like is not the right button. Perhaps there should be prayer and grieve buttons.

    Hey brother, it’s amazing how the Lord works. A couple days ago I finished my daily devotionals for next week and this is the theme of one of them. In fact, it’s the same verse out of Job! God’s timing is impeccable and He knows how to get a hold of hearts. Praying for you guys!

    For the glory of Christ,

      Thanks John. We also have seen God’s impeccable timing at work lately.
