You look finly at the pass. Were thosedays that good old days.

The answer to these questions probablydepends on what you're going through right now. IFLIFO is full of trials and Thereis,probably a desire go back to a simper, less trying time Li urther we're in the midst of trials.

...we're making our way through job andchapter twenty eight through thirty one jove just goes on a rampage. I meanhe's heard it from his friends. So far, elephasbild AD, he they've justcontinually been chewing on him and he's at it, and he just gos and justgoes on Lampag and an that real moment of expressing hisfrustration at his briands and what they're saying he make Sastak, where he longs for months, thatavnoba in a very real moment of humanity. Jobreflects on what his life was like. Just a few months ago, everything was great. It was as if he was living the perfectwife. He was walking with God. He had a powerful minister. He had agreat family,...

...he was never inlonked, he was never inpain. He was respected by all. Around Mi life was Havit on eart, so to speak, tite minute lways Oandin his lone Sicklang, with nothing else left in this world.He Gos recalls a good old, the days nowhen our leves crumblebefore our eyes. It is very tempting and human toreflect all what was before the trial ever came about. We're INA trial has a world as a nation,his individuals right now with Covet Ninety we're dealing with that, and we thinkthat, just to a few months ago,...

...we could come to our church and worshiptogether. We could walk up the people and shakehands and go and grab something and take ourfriends out to the movies or to dinner and and everything seemed to be good. INAIS. All that's changed. Some have suffered even more thanothers, losing their jobs and there's a temptation not just now,but any time we go through trials, there's a temptation I wish I wish I could go back to whereI was wish. I could go back to a year ago. I wish I could go back to two years ago.I wish I could go back when life was so much metter. We seemed toRomantiize. Yesterday we find ourselves Molin for what was and reflecting on what we could havedone differently...

...to avoid the trials of which we'returning job longsporn. Even reflectsem monthsgone by. They further confesses days ofsuffering grip him as his life slips away. That's Foundin, chapter thirtyand verse. Sixteen btthe days of sulfering grip him and his life is slipping away. The reflection leads him to hisconfession as to why it has occurred. All we wanted to do was serve his God.Pople an prequencypleeone. He says e had 't chaper thirty one. Hebasically says you know Alg before this came all I ever want to do serve my notfavoly leave from any sin.

Why would God not use him? No, that's many of us all we want to do is faithfully serve.U and Levomse, and Hin that faithful service to God anthat trying to do right. We have trials, we don't know why they are. We don'tknow why they come and we think through these trials, andwe think I wish I could go back to win things were so much better. Dgod was using en things were so smooth, Garrin NU. Are you done with me? IIS IT? Those thougts were plaing Joe Times.Perhaps they plague US...

Never forget that, whatever trial that you're facing thatyou will face when you go through it and it gets difficult in the darktissgets around you in the night is so dark and you're like. I can't seeanything can't even see the next step. Indortake he'll, never forget. Nigt is darcas before that. ERS I before that First Ra, The Sun Co. That's! When the night is Darke, natuality God would exalt Joe. He would restore jobes why he wouldrestore jobes health. He would restore jokes family, he would reestore joeswell, he would resnore Jon's ministry...

His family is well his respect, his health, hisministry. They seem to be the grens and his trial comes into his life and he'slost all of it and he's like. Oh, if I could just go back to yesterday- and God is saying Joe don't desire for yesterday, your gratest names are ahead.
