I had to play catchup on my weekend reading in my Through the Bible in a Year routine. Job continues his discussion with his friends about his innocence. But today, one verse stood out to me above all others. I read about Job’s innocence and why God is punishing him. I hear his friends act rationally, and completely ungodly in their response. But one verse leaped out to me, it spoke to me. I found my life explained in this one verse.
In fact, this epiphany will become my life verse now.
What is it you ask?
It’s in Job 19:17
My breath is offensive to my wife;
I am loathsome to my own family.
Yes, I find myself in that verse. I am at peace now. God has spoken to me.
