Read Time: 1 minute

Standing in the backyard, I peer into the sky.
More rain is headed toward us, and I stop and wonder why.
The grass is green, the crops are lush, and somewhere far away
People curse their dry, parched land and pray for rain today.

Walking through a wooded trail, I peer into my head.
Thoughts I cannot reconcile are filling me with dread.
How many paths have I walked along that led me to sin?
How many times must I fail before I change within?

Kneeling down before my bed, I peer into my heart.
Regret, sorrow, worry are pulling me apart.
Seeing all too clearly the mistakes that I have made,
Hoping I can overcome before they lead me to the grave.

Father, behold my weaknesses; You see them every day.
You know about my many flaws, how easily I stray.
Guide me along Your narrow path; please send angels this way
To watch and support me on this Kingdom quest, I pray.

Suggested Readings
Job is one of the most unique books of the Bible and one of the most intriguing—an often-perplexing story of how God relates to man.
Jewish tradition attributes the Book of Job to Moses, making it the oldest book in the Bible. Yet it offers no hint of the Red Sea crossing, the giving of the Law, or the Israelites’ wilderness wanderings. This suggests Job’s trials and their dramatic retelling took place before Moses led the Israelites out of Egypt.
