Job 22:21

This is a stressful week, not just for me but for quite a few people in my life.  Sometimes the roughest of times are when a little nugget of wisdom shines the brightest, though.  A friend sent me a verse that I am holding on to.  It is from the book of Job.  I think Job knew a bit about stress, don't you?

Job 22:21, "Agree with God, and be at peace; in this way good will come to you.



So simple.  So true.

at the end of Job, God changes Job's circumstances after Job has prayed for his friends. ever since i read that, i have been struck with how important it is to pray for others in the midst of our own trials.

also, Romans 12:12 would be very applicable for your week, i think.

may rich blessings come to all of you through the trials this week.

I love your photo -- makes me homesick! And I have to admit, life would be so much easier, wouldn't it, if we could always "agree with God" I fight that so, sometimes, thinking that *I* know what's best for my life. Perhaps Job knew something about this, and the fact that it brought peace. Thank you for sharing this verse today! I think I needed to hear it. Hope things get better for you and those in your life.
