Resilience

Let the day perish in which I was born, and the night that said, ‘A man-child is conceived”.

“Why did I not die at birth, come forth from the womb and expire?”.

“Or why was I not buried like a stillborn child, like an infant that never sees the light?”.

“Why is light given to one who cannot see the way, whom God has fenced in?”.

The above supplications, lamenting and complaining are from the same person that had previously said:

“Naked I came from my mother’s womb, and naked I will depart. The Lord gave and the Lord has taken away; may the name of the Lord be praised.”

Yes, this man was Job—a man in anguish in distress, after suffering, and facing a crisis, when he lost his children, his properties and was living in poor meager health…

We can find the Scriptures in (Job: 3:3, 11,16 &23) (Job 1:21)

A bit contradicting if you asked me huh, more like confusing. I could say he had a mental illness more than a spiritual one.

However, he was spiritually searching, mourning, grieving and crying to the right source allowing his soul to be set free and looking for healing in all directions within the same source—indeed in order for his mind to be grounded to be able to come back to his senses and process what was taking place in his life at the current moment.

How many people do that nowadays. He had to go through all of that in order to know that he was not abandoned, he was not forgotten about, his friends didn’t hated him and he was going to receive what he had lost in multiples.

He was being processed.

How many reading this today can relate with Job?

How many give God praise and Glory and then see that the crisis doesn’t cease and wish they were swallowed by the earth?

How many ask for patience and then want out in the midst of difficulties?

Oh dear I know the feeling I’ve been there—I know about a crisis or two or three, too many. LIFE IS HARD! Yes, life is what you make it, (they say) I’m still in the making of mine.

Truth is that life comes with unexpected turn and we don’t which direction to go, we simply allow the wheel of our spirit to let our source guide us to the right direction. Trusting God as our shaft to turn our wheels is the best we can do after letting the clutch connect with out engines.

There’s time for everything! If you learn to seek in the right places you will get more than what you have lost!

Seek for help in the right source my friend!

With much love as always!
