Time: 9:00 AM

Weather: Looks like a crisp fall day

Readings: Job, chapters 21-25

Noteworthy Verse:

“However much they strut and flex their muscles, there’s nothing to them.  They’re hollow.  They may have an illusion of security, but God has his eye on them.  They may get their brief successes, but then it’s over, nothing to show for it.  Like yesterday’s newspaper, they’re used to wrap up the garbage.”

Job 24:22-24

Significance:

  • In this verse, Job is talking to his friends about the ultimate fate of those who deny God.  This verse serves as a useful reminder that no matter how much we accomplish in this life, without God it is all brief and temporary.  God is the only one who can offer us eternal life and therefore the only one that will give true purpose and meaning to our lives.

Feelings:
I’ve been praying more the past couple of days and I can already feel the positive impacts it is having on my mental well-being.
