“I shall come forth as gold.”

“I shall come forth as gold.”

Job 23:10 (RSV)
10 “But he knows the way that I take; when he has tried me, I shall come forth as gold.”

Lessons learned throughout my life span; nothing stays the same even if you don’t do anything to change it. It’s silly to think this way. The fact is things happen, circumstances change all the time. As a person I change my mind all the time. What might be very important yesterday is another something today. What is on my mind right now, what should I be doing today? Working all day long, getting home and preparing dinner for my family?

After the dinner, we get the dishes washed and sit down to watch something on TV, take a bath and go to bed. The circle of my life seems so mundane, constant repetition.

Reading the book of Job, I noticed he went through so much. He lost everything, even his children. Then I see Job states “I shall come forth as gold.”


Father God, I have not gone through the same difficulties and troubles Job has. I do not have the strength, wisdom or understanding he had to face even the trial I am facing today. I do want to pray “let me come forth as gold.” I don’t want to be a disappointment to You today, guide me Holy Spirit and make my path straight. In the name of Jesus Christ. Amen

I say I am a Christian wife, an Author, Radio Presenter, a Blogger, a mother, and stepmother, a granny, and a Data Capture and Personal Assistant. I absolutely and unconditionally love the LORD my God, and my husband and children. I love to write devotionals about the Word of God – the Bible. I like to incorporate my feelings and understanding in my blogs. We all face challenges don't we, and for me, it is just as difficult as for the next person. I also get frustrated and irritated and cry, and after everything I have tried, I turn back to God. I seem to learn the hard way, just like a little child always wanting to try it myself before I ask Daddy for help. I would say that I am a people's kind of person, I feel their pain, and I love to laugh with them. I always aspire to see the very best in people, never judging and still considering what they might be facing as people there and then. On meeting people, I always place them in the highest bracket on my scale. I believe the very best of each person. I do hope you love reading my blogs and seeing what I am doing on my web page. In the precious name of the Lord Jesus Christ, I bless you.
