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.”

Hebrews 11:1
