The Story of Job
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

The Story of Job
I'm sure you remember 

 the story of Job.

 God's blessings in his life

 were greatly bestowed.


 The Devil came to speak to God one day.

 "I'm sure Job will curse you if I

 take everything away."


 Everything in Job's life seemed to be getting worse.

 Through all of this, to God,

 he never cursed.


 All that he had-was soon to ge gone.

 His "friends" told him it

 "was his fault-he was wrong."


 He blessed God in spit of all they had said.

 He would praise God until

 the day he was dead.


 In all the loss and the turmoils.

 His body would soon be covered with boils.


 He loved God even though he lost his possessions.

 Spending eternity in heaven was his obsession.


 If everything in your lie was taken from you.

 Would you bless or curse God

 -what would you do?


 Is he more important than

 your house or s.u.v.?

 Would you give him up for a "big screen t.v.?"


 Is he your prized possession

 whom you love so much?

 Or are you using Christianity as simply a crutch?


 For one day soon-all you have

 will certainly perish.

 Is it God--or this world-- whom you love and cherish?

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
