Over the last few weeks, I’ve been looking at ways to apply the word found in the book of Job and sharing some thoughts that not only can benefit you now but also help the next generation too! The greatest of all possessions one can hand off to future generations are the guiding principles taught by Christ Jesus.
Within the post “Rocky Road”, the lesson is that we came into the world with nothing and we leave with nothing. What we do have is the love of God and that’s worth more than we could ever imagine.
In “Maintain Integrity”, we shared that Job goes through a second test but his attitude continued to be that we enter the world with nothing so if wealth is lost, nothing is lost. If health is lost, quality of life while on Earth is lost. But if integrity is lost, we lose everything so we need to hold onto integrity and ask God for support.
The take away from “Questions During Dark Times” is that the mind may get tired, the body weak, confidence may be shaken, or patience strained but we can maintain hope in our struggles because God has provided light for dark times.
The post “Empower with Hopefulness” has some thoughts on being considerate of others in their time of need. Pointing out the good they do is a virtuous deed and expressing the strengths you see in them empowers them with needed hopefulness in troubled times.
A thought brought out in “Warm Hearted Spirit” is that bad things can happen to people and it may not be their fault. When bad things happen, people need someone to listen and offer a kind word; a warm-hearted spirit to encourage them.
Some might blame situations or others for hard times but it’s important to let your actions rise above excuses. The deed is half done when you make a beginning so like discussed in “The First Step of the Way”, start by turning to God.
Keep up with my spiritual journey over the next few weeks either through following this blog or the Facebook page I’ve set up at this link: This Day With God – A Spiritual Journey. Let’s share thoughts or ideas about applying our faith so we step ahead along the path to victory.
