Thoughts on Faith



The first reading at Mass this week was the following from Job (7:1-7):

Job spoke, saying:
Is not man's life on earth a drudgery?
Are not his days those of hirelings?
He is a slave who longs for the shade,
a hireling who waits for his wages.
So I have been assigned months of misery,
and troubled nights have been allotted to me.
If in bed I say, "When shall I arise?"
then the night drags on;
I am filled with restlessness until the dawn.
My days are swifter than a weaver's shuttle;
they come to an end without hope.
Remember that my life is like the wind;
I shall not see happiness again.


I unfortunately feel like Job at times. I suspect we all do. But, perhaps my natural leanings in my personality are to feel this way a bit more than average. I do not like that about myself and wish to change. I need to keep working at making myself a better person. I do NOT and should NOT act like Job.
