I Can't Argue with God

“How can I ever argue with him…
Even though I am innocent I could never prove it…
If I called on God and He answered me, 
then and only then, would I believe he’d heard me.

As it is he knocks me about from pillar to post, 
beating me up, black and blue for no reason…
He piles bitterness upon bitterness…
If it a question of justice, who’ll serve him a subpoena?”
(Job 9:14-20, The Message)

"...if he’s not responsible, who is?" (Job 9:24)

Dear Reader, Do Job’s words strike and cord with you?
There have been years when I found myself wrestling with
God over situations that did not vanish like a mist in the sun.
"God, if you're not responsible, who is????

See the new story: “Grieving.”
