Even after all he's been thru... these words from Job. Can't help but think of Handel's Messiah.
I Know That God Lives;
Still, I know that God lives—the One who gives me back my life--
and eventually he’ll take his stand on earth.
And I’ll see him—even though I get skinned alive!--
see God myself, with my very own eyes.
Oh, how I long for that day! Job 19:23-27 MSG
25 I know that my redeemer lives,
and that in the end he will stand on the earth.
26 And after my skin has been destroyed,
yet in my flesh I will see God;
27 I myself will see him
with my own eyes—I, and not another.
How my heart yearns within me!
Job 19:25-27 NIV
