“Are you still holding on to your integrity? Curse God and die” Job 2:9
What a great supportive wife! But hang on a minute, she was spared when the rest of his family were slaughtered. She had been through all the family trouble with Job except for sickness, and when he got sick, she caved in and said that.
Maybe it was out of love and she didn't want to see him suffer, she had definitely come to the end of her tether though and couldn't see that things would ever improve.
Job calls her a foolish woman and says “should we accept good from God and not trouble?” I myself have said to my husband, "you’re wasting your time. D’you really think that job you applied for are gonna call you back, we both know they’re not. Give up." How could I be so negative? Because I’ve got used to him never hearing back from applications and interviews?
Yes, God has been good to us and we aren’t quite on the scrap heap yet, we have our health and our marriage is just about surviving, but the period of very low income has been hard to bear. We have both rejoiced in the good times and we both have to weather the bad times, and know that God is a God of fairness and justice and we will never know in this life the rhyme or reason of the paths our lives take, but we can know that eventually our blessings will be uncountable, more than we can imagine.
It's time to stop doubting and start trusting "I know that you can do all things; no plan of yours can be thwarted" Job 42:2
