Reflection on Job 23:1-17

My God, my God

Why have you forsaken me?

Like Job sitting in the dirt

Scraping his skin

Seeking relief

From pain within

I look everywhere

You are gone

My friends say

You have sinned”

My theology of suffering

Looks very thin

I know you’re here God

I will not let you go

This is a test, and tests end

I will see your face again
