We’ve been reading Job in church recently, and Kevin and I have been making wallpapers with lines from the last part, which speak of the majesty of God.
It’s been good to reflect on Job and his trials, because our little boy has a problem with his legs.It started off a few months ago with a tic in his left leg, so he couldn’t put it down. Tests are ongoing, meanwhile he was getting along really well on crutches, and I was hoping he wold be able to walk again soon.
Just this week however, something weird has gone wrong with the other leg, and he can’t take his weight on that one either! Crutches are useless now.
I wish we could go back to how it was, but now he has a wheelchair, or he crawls on one knee and two hands.
Thinking about Job helps put my boy’s problems in perspective – “Where were you when I laid the foundation of the earth?” God thunders to Job, from the whirlwind. Maybe God is telling our family that we need to trust more, leave God to be God, and be thankful that our boy is healthy, even if rather unconventional in his locomotion!
