We say they are happy because they did not give up. You have heard about Job’s patience, and you know the Lord’s purpose for him in the end. You know the Lord is full of mercy and is kind.
Though He slay me, yet will I trust in Him, but I will defend my own ways before Him.
1 Peter 5:10
But after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace, who has called us to His eternal glory through Christ Jesus, will restore, support, strengthen, and establish you.
Jesus said, “I am the Bread of Life. The person who aligns with Me hungers no more and thirsts no more, ever. I have told you this explicitly because even though you have seen Me in action, you don’t really believe Me.
Wait for the Lord’s help. Be strong and brave and wait for the Lord’s help.
Thank You, Lord, for being the wind beneath our wings.
but those who keep waiting for the Lord will renew their strength. Then they’ll soar on wings like eagles; they’ll run and not grow weary; they’ll walk and not grow tired.”
Even now my days have passed me by; my plans lie broken at my feet; the secret wishes of my heart grow cold.
