Here I sit again with Job,
listening to Bildad ramble on and on.
Don’t people love to talk when someone else is struggling?
Like Charlie Brown’s teacher,
Bildad’s voice fills the air.
I can almost see Job using his hand as a puppet
to mimic the endless talking.
But did Job pause like I did when he heard these words……….
The one who forgets God relies on a spider web.
A frail string of webs
may stop a bug in mid-flight
but it will never support the weight of man.
Help me, Lord, to trust in You,
not fragile things I can see and touch.
“Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.”
