His sun’s rays

Glint atop the globe

Hope’s light stays

He is the reason Job

Suffered long

Without casting his eyes


Sure why crossed his mind


Yet Job kept looking far

Beyond what his eyes could find

Proclaiming The Only God

Who deserves praise from whispers lowed

Surrender Job chose instead

Seems when seasons change

We find reasons to complain

Too hot


Too cold

I am too young or dreadfully old

Let us seek

Until our cheeks are raw

Our soul’s ajar

Our minds return from far

To align with Him

We release the me with abandon


Only to fall gently into His peace

Where the unknowns

no longer scorn

our hearts ornately adorned

with holy clothes of Christ


Every wound

freed to bleed

receive His spirit

and arise

with worship in our eyes

To Our Savior and Lord

Forever, yes evermore.


At this , Job got up and tore his robe and shaved his head.

Then he fell to the ground in worship and said,

‘Naked I came from my mother’s womb and naked I will depart. The Lord gave and the Lord has taken away, may the name of the Lord be praised.’

In all this, Job did not sin by charging God with wrongdoing (Job 1:20-22).


I welcome any and all comments for this poem. Job is a hard book in the Bible to read. I have been avoiding going back to it. Yet, it is important one to read as Job’s life was stripped down to nothing, and he remained faithful to His God, Our Father in Heaven.

So what does that mean for us?

Oh, so many thoughts and prayers going up tonight.
