Jayda I hope it's alright that I started a thread!

Recently I studied the Book of Job (among other books) and found kind of a hidden, comforting message among the words written there.

Among all of the trials that Job went through, physically, mentally - he even lost his friends - Job never lost his faith. He continually praised the Lord, trusting Him to help Him through the trials that were set in his path.

Now, whenever I start to think that my life isn't going well, or that something is terrible for me, I try to think "You are not yet as Job", as a story in my specific religion says. It helps comfort me and let me know that things could be much worse.

Carol (goodreadscomcarolann) The book of Job is one of my favorites -- have you ever seen William Blake's Book of Job?
