“Should we accept only good things from the hand of God and never anything bad?” (Job‬ ‭2:10‬)

I must have only been about 7 or 8 years old. I’d been out with my friends playing football and when I finally came home my mother noticed me holding my right hand rather protectively. When she asked me what was wrong, I instinctively pulled away from her, telling her not to touch it as it hurt.

After a lot of coaxing, she finally got me to show her. I’d gotten a huge splinter in my finger, it must have been in for days and had started to go black and septic.

She immediately got some hot water and a bowl together with a pair of tweezers and a needle. My imagination ran rife and I must have screamed the house down in fear!

I did not succumb willingly but she never quit and finally out came the offending splinter. I managed to pull away in grateful joy … but no – there was MORE!!! “It’s not finished yet son,” she said. “I now need to get the poison out!” I had to go back through the valley of the shadow of death! Noooooo!!!

For a seeming eternity I laid there (sobbing) while she (gently) squeezed out all the horrible stuff that had gotten into my finger through my ignorance (stupidity).

The moral … sometimes we have to let GOD’s gentle fingers remove the ‘stuff’ we’ve accumulated in our lives – ‘stuff’ that will ultimately destroy us! ❤️

If we boast that we have no sin, we’re only fooling ourselves and are strangers to the truth. But if we freely admit our sins when his light uncovers them, he will be faithful to forgive us every time
