  “Behold, i am of small amount; what shall i answer you?

                                            I lay my hand on my mouth...

    I know that YOU can do all things, and that no purpose of YOURS can be thwarted.

                                      therefore, i have uttered what i did not understand

                            things too wonderful for me, which i did not know.

                                                                                                    but now my eyes see YOU...”

                                                                                                           --Job answered the LORD.

 

i echo Job in the Old Testament. i have been silenced by the mighty hand of the LORD. 

i declare my smallness, my simple way of thinking. it has silenced me. i have had to put my hand over my mouth. you see i have been faithful but not always understanding resulting in  questions lying deep in my heart---

         Why did you take away?  Where is your justice?   Why aren’t you answering?

ALL the while GOD was patiently molding, developing my faith to be rooted even stronger, helping me see what HE sees.  Preparing me for HIS purposes.  Taking away my dreams and restoring them with HIS.  Let me say, my script for life was pretty boring I am so glad i gave up the pen and gave the writing to HIM.... i do not always understand HIS timing BUT i trust it.  I have seen and tasted that HE is good even in the taking away.

A long story short, these precious souls seen above have been God’s “restoring fortune” to us... more script to come. Job 42.10
