Wednesdays are usually pretty crazy. I have a prayer meeting I usually go to on Wednesday morning. So I usually have very little time to work on Wednesday mornings. Today I glanced through business e-mail before leaving. I’ve gotten a couple different things about the travel agent prospect. I think that this is something I should pursue. There are just details to figure out. I was also invited to bid on an editing job. It looks like it could be an on going job.. I went on and bid on it and will just see what happens. I might be able to do both somehow. I don’t know. Please pray about all this. Figuring things out sooner rather than later would be so nice.
Now, on to the book… Alcorn writes, “Scripture doesn’t minimize suffering or gloss over it”. I’m studying the Book of Job as part of my quiet time each morning. Job suffered. It’s very obvious that he did. We know the end of the story. We know that Job’s later life exceeded everything he had before the troubles started.
Or think about what we’re about to celebrate this weekend. Although Jesus had told them He would rise again, they didn’t understand that that’s literally what He meant. So when Jesus died, of course they figured everything was over. What person in their natural mind wouldn’t..
We do not see or know the end of our story. That’s a very good thing for me to keep in mind lately.
