Psalms 22:1 – my God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? Why art thou so far from helping me, and from the words of my roaring?
Consider this; the book of Job begins with 5 verses devoted to speaking of the good things in his life and ends with 6 Verses speaking of the blessings he would ultimately receive in response to his faith. In between, there are 42 chapters that speak of the trouble Job experienced. The struggle is real; it can often feel like the Lord is ignoring us because the road we are traveling seems so desolate. However, if we knew the path the Lord was taking us on, we’d be too fearful to travel it. If we desire to Grow, the road we travel will often be filled with trouble. Knowing this, are we still willing to journey on?
