Watching my husband suffer so many things in his flesh from all angles and trusting the Lord through it all is understandable of what our forefather Job spoke of when he said, “Though you slay me, yet will I trust Him.” –My husband has gone through 2 heart attacks, temporary blindness, gout, congestive heart failure, type 2 diabetes, neuropathy in both feet, stomach ailments, over 20+ surgeries, with 7 of those in losing toes and then eventually both legs amputated below the knees, and on top of it all being on dialysis 3 times a week due to renal failure. Through all of his bodily infirmities…just as Job’s friends sat with him in false accusations and criticism, my husband too has faced these issues. Yet, he will never let go of his integrity! The Lord has given him the strength and power to continue in the faith in his weaknesses.
I believe just as he does that in the end…he is and will be blessed as righteous Job was! I on the other hand will never be the foolish wife to tell my husband to curse God and die. That was her story…not mine. Be strong in the Lord my sweet…this too shall pass!
