Leadership Devo of the Week: Job 30:16

“My soul is poured out within me; days of affliction have taken hold of me…”  The Book of Job is not a feel good song.  We may be tempted to stay away from it.  Yet, there is good news.  The range of frustration to anxiety, discouragement to despair takes the honest person of prayer to lament. Job 30:16 affirms that lament is faith and such faith is honest prayer.  What do you do when you feel days of affliction have taken hold of you?  Teach us the honesty and faith of lament, that we may honestly find You there, O God. Amen.
