Many things I have tried to grasp and have lost.  That which I have placed in God’s hands I still have.

From Job 1:20-22:  “Then Job arose, tore his robe, shaved his head, and fell on the ground and worshiped.  He said, ‘Naked I came from my mother’s womb, and naked shall I return there; the Lord gave, and the Lord has taken away; blessed be the name of the Lord.’  In all this Job did not sin or charge God with wrongdoing.”

The Bible is alive, it speaks to me; it has feet, it runs after me; it has hands, it lays hold of me.  The Bible is not antique or modern.  It is eternal.

From Matthew 4:4:  “But He [Jesus] answered, ‘It is written, One does not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.'”

I have held many things in my hands, and have lost them all, but whatever I have placed in God’s hands, that I still possess.

From James 5:11:  “Indeed we call blessed those who showed endurance.  You have heart of the endurance of Job, and you have seen the purpose of the Lord, how the Lord is compassionate and merciful.”
