The truth...

I've read so much and learned even more lately, on the importance of trusting God and rejoicing in your trials. I mean, my FAVORITE Bible verse is James 1:2 where it says "Consider it pure joy when you face trials of any kind. For the testing of your faith leads to perseverance. Perseverance must finish it's work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything". That's my favorite verse. I've used it as my rock for many years now. I've also been reading about David, (via Psalms) and how he sang and rejoiced when he was enduring many threats and problems. (From Saul). I've been reading in the book of Job FOREVER, which tells the story of a man who loved God so much, that he refused to curse his name when God allowed Satan to take everything from him. His family, house, friends, job, etc etc. The only thing Satan wasn 't allowed to do was kill him. And through it all, Job never became angry or upset with God.

I consider myself more like David than anyone else in the Bible. For reasons that are obvious, and for reasons that are personal only to me. I think Job is a great example of how to go about having a relationship with God. The words of the Bible aren't words that I blindly follow, or only believe in because I've been raised (for the most part) in a Christian home. I believe everything in the Bible. I know that the lessons in it are for my benefit, and that if I lived and breathe every word, I'd be in a better place mentally.

Some days I'm up, some days I'm down. Some days I wake up and I feel on fire for getting a new job, like the world is my oyster. And some days I wake up and feel like I'm 30 and that this is an all too-familiar feeling for me and that it's insurmountable. The truth is I'm frustrated. I'm tired. I'm confused. I'm scared. But I know that God's plan is best for me. It's just really hard to live and breathe the Bible every second. I try as best as I can, but I'm only human. And I know that not having a job right now and the potential consequences that go along with that are NOTHING compared to the problems that others face daily like famine, religious persecution and things of that nature.

It's therapeutic for me to write about it though. So fortunately or unfortunately for you, that's my vibe right now.
