It was a great weekend

...but my heart is still very heavy three days later. Not only do I have a brand new perspective on the book of Job, which on its own is sobering at the very least. I also think I have a different idea of what suffering can be in this world.

My life is so lofty and cushioned. I do not thank Him for His providence and I also struggle to see/think/feel beyond my day-to-day existence in this rich life. I fear this life I live could be the death of me, a warning preached regularly from my church's pulpit. So, honestly, I am trying to figure out where to go from here. In what manner do I continue through this life in the very place that He has me with this new knowledge?
