  1. Job 23:10 says, “But he knows the way that I take; when he has tested me, I will come forth as gold.” God is aware of where we are; it is only us who cannot always identify the places we’ve been blown to.
    amen amen amen

    This is where I am right now, actually my whole family Like the song from Casting Crowns, I Will Praise You In this Storm, this has been my prayer and cry (literally). I keep saying lately, I’m NOT going around this mountain again, I’m either going over it or through it, but I’m NOT going around it again, doing the same old same old that keeps me in the same place. God is doing some mighty changes in our lives, our hearts and our minds, and I will , I WILL praise Him in this storm…

    Thanks for this devotional.

  2. …appreciate your blog Jim.

    He gets us to the other side. I preached an entire message — and maybe on of my best — on this text alone. At the time I felt as if I barely scratched the surface. 15 years later I still think about it.

    I am a quote freak, and Twain is a favorite — in the company of Luther — I have never read that one.


  3. This is good. Thank you. Our God is a jealous God and so deeply loves us that he will take us into the storm, to shape us more into His image. Blessings!
