Climb the Heights

“Naked I came from my mother’s womb, and naked I shall return there.

The Lord gave and the Lord has taken away.

Blessed be the name of the Lord.

Through all this Job did not sin nor did he blame God.”   Job  1:20-22

“It is easier to lower your view of God than to raise your faith to such a height.”  Dr. Frances I. Andersen (Speaking about Job’s attitude after he lost his children, livestock, and servants.)

Job is a very interesting man to read about. As I do this deeper study of this man who went from uber riches, highest standing in the community, and great health to nothing; in a blink; I am aware of the weakness of my trust, hope, and confidence in the power that created me, you, and the universe.

 

“The heights by great men reached and kept

Were not attained by sudden flight,

But they, while their companions slept

Were toiling upward in the night.” Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

 

The oils of Clarity, Frankincense, and Valor keep me on track to keep working at this relationship with this almighty power I call God.
