Living In Grace {Day 28}

Day 28
"Though he slay me, yet will I hope in him;
    I will surely defend my ways to his face."

I saw this verse about a month ago, and it has stuck with me ever since.  I feel like one person from the Bible I can semi relate to is Job.  He had everything, and then he had nothing, nothing but God.  Some days you are on top of the world and the next you are down in the lowest ditch ever dug.  

Not that my life is that dramatic, but I often feel like "man, oh man, today is awesome, the kids are acting like angels, Eric is happy, life is great."  Then something happens and I am declared the worst mom and wife ever. 

I encourage you to read through Job, although you might not be encouraged, it has a great message and shows a lot about God's grace.  I feel like in life I often ask God why, or I may say seriously, God?!  I get overwhelmed, I get depressed, I get to the point where staying in bed sounds better than facing the wolrd, or my family.  

Although God may slay me, I still have hope, I still know he loves me and cares for me.  I still live in his unending grace on a daily basis.
