Waylan Choy stashed this in Lord Giveth, Lord Taketh Away
Job 1:21 -
And [Job] said, Naked came I out of my mother's womb, and naked shall I return thither: the LORD gave, and the LORD hath taken away; blessed be the name of the LORD.
Interpretation (of many):
We must accept with humility and faith whatever happens to us in life, both good and bad, because life itself is a gift from God. He gives to us and He takes from us according to His own plan. ...
This topic can be tackled on so many levels. Too many to include in a single article.
Let's look at it from the following:
1. If we have true faith, difficult times and trials will always bring us closer to God, not further away.
2. Everything we have is from God. If we have good things, then that is more than what we had when we were born. These good things were given to us by the grace of God. Who are we to complain when He takes them away?
3. True faith is about faith, not feeling.
