Im pretty sure Job had shingles!
Shingles...ive always heard about this painful virus which is actually dormant chicken pox that has been in your body since you initially! contracted chicken pox and has deciced to re appear as very painful blisters called shingles, but I never gave it much thought until I had an outbreak that started a few days ago. And now I'm pretty sure the boils that tormented Job were none other than shingles! Well I may be over reacting a bit...but not much! Ouch! I cant believe how much pain I have been in! So I was sent home from work because some co workers felt it may be contagious. And because I cant afford to stay home from work or a doctor(I have no medical right now) or the Medication, I cried almost the entire way back home and into the arms of my loving caring husband. Who took me to the beach to pray. (The beach is where he always goes to get alone and talk with God about serious stuff) We came away with the peace in our hearts that 1. God loves us. We are His children. 2. God has NEVER not met our needs. EVER. 3. The God of the Bible can be trusted to take care of us, His children. 4. Whatever happens is because He allowed it to happen...For a reason that we may not know until we get to Heaven. So we came home and a wonderful family (who are staying with us while they teach classes at our church) prayed for Jesus to completely heal my body. And that the blisters would be gone when I woke up in the morning. ...and we know that all things work together for good to those who love God and are called according to His purpose! I believe this!! And put my hope in Jesus!!
