Job 4:1-7:21;  1 Corinthians 14:18-40;  Psalm 37:30-40;  Proverbs 21:27

“Blessed is the man whom God corrects;

so do not despise the discipline of

the Almighty.

For he wounds, but he also binds up;

he injures, but his hands also heal.”

Job 5:17-18

 

“Blessed is the man who remains steadfast under trial,

for when he has stood the test he will receive

the crown of life, which God has promised to those

who love him.”

James 1:12

 

Stay where God

has placed me.

Stay in His good Grace.

Stay on through

the night,

till He brings

on the day.

Like the good Shepherd

that He is

He knows I’m prone

to stray,

to turn my head the other way

and ignore His

word to stay.

His oil of forgiveness

He applies

when bruised and sore

I, at last, return

from the distant gray.

Thank you Good Shepherd for commanding me to stay, to want to never leave you.  Thank you for your Word and the fellowship of other believers that correct my course when I wander away.  Thank you for your healing balm of forgiveness.  Praise your holy Name,  Amen.
