On Wednesday I finished this blog, and that morning my husband went to his post-op doctor appointment for his knee replacement surgery that he had six weeks ago. Struggling with pain, he had a lot of questions for the doctor and was reassured he was well on the road to a good recovery! That same day our youngest grandson wrote this letter to God:
Remember the words to the hymn, The Solid Rock?
My hope is built on nothing less than Jesus’ blood and righteousness.
I dare not trust the sweetest frame, but wholly lean on Jesus’ Name.
On Christ, the solid Rock, I stand: All other ground is sinking sand.
What is your hope based upon?
Every night before going to bed I listen to God’s Word being read to me from the Ezra Project! Recently it has been from the book of Job. Job lived in the land of Uz, between 2000-1800 B.C., which was located near the desert land between Damascus and the Euphrates. Job was quite wealthy. He had thousands of sheep, camels, and other livestock. His family was large and influential. Job 1:3 tells us he was the greatest man among all the people of the east.
