Job with a captial J.

I just read something in the Bible that was so life giving to me. It's been a while since I've read something that spoke so personally to me. It's in one of my-I know it's depressing, but still one of my favorite books-JOB. It says:

In the past you have encouraged many a troubled soul to trust in God; you have supported those who were weak. Your words have strengthened the fallen; you steadied those who wavered. But now, when trouble strikes, you faint and are broken. Does your reverence for God give you no confidence? Shouldn't you believe that God will care for those who are upright?
Job 4:3-6

That's one of the only times that his friends make any sense at all. Man, I 'm glad you guys aren't like Job's friends.

*SIDE NOTE* I thought I would put a picture of Job on here to go along with the post. I typed in JOB PICTURES thinking, "I know that Job also spells job so I might get some pictures of workers, but what I'm really looking for is like an old Catholic looking drawing of Job and his friends. Maybe I should type in Eliphaz as well. Nah, no big deal."
My friends, I was wrong. It was a big deal. I didn't get any pictures of Job or even jobs. I saw pictures of another kind of job and I was not prepared to see that!

Dear Internet,
Sometimes you really suck! -No pun intended.

The book of Job is one my favorite's too. I know it is kind of depressing, but I love how Job never gave up and always believed God was good. It's so encouraging!
