“Though He slay me, I will hope in Him; yet I will argue my ways to His face.” -Job 13:15
“… The LORD gave, and the LORD has taken away; blessed be the name of the LORD.” – Job 1:21

At one point, he was talking about the sudden death of his father and he said these words with such emotion and certainty that I can still hear him speaking them in my head, ” The Lord takes away, but NEVER does He stop giving.”
