Provision For The Soul

Though he slay me, I will hope in him; yet I will argue my ways to his face. This will be my salvation, that the godless shall not come before him. - Job 13:15-16 (ESV) So today is Friday the 13th. It's the day that no one is supposed to feel lucky. Fortunately, for you our family celebrated it a week early, so none of you have anything to worry about. It's been quite a week around here... Seriously if we believe God, we know that He is the one who rules over everything including both the universal story and our personal one. In the trenches of life, that is often hard to see and harder to understand. Awful things happen to us. Evil things are done. Life falls apart. Permanent damage is done. How do we try to understand this? What do we do when the pieces of life don't fit? This week we have the opportunity to look into the life of a man who seemed to be living Friday the 13th over and over and over. His name was Job. In looking into his story we can not only see his struggle, but also how we can get our bearings as we struggle in our tragedies. I'm looking forward to hear my friend, Jim Dietz open up the Word for us. Jim ministered many years ago alongside my father, and has since held positions as a pastor, seminary professor, and now a chaplain.
