i couldn't have said it better myself so, to quote a dvd reviewer:
Before I get into this review, I want to state a personal pet peeve of mine. I cannot stand the way movie studios release multiple versions of DVDs. THE GREAT ESCAPE is just the most recent in a long, long line of discs that first saw release years ago as a barebones edition, only to see a double-disc release now, filled with extras. What am I supposed to do with my old copy now? It's irrelevant, no one wants it...

Who Are YOU?
i went to a conference last weekend in which the topic was "The Providence of God". one of the main reasons i went was because i have struggled with a specific mental battle for several years now in which the basic gist of it is "why did you let this thing from the past happen God?!?!" [note the ridiculous demanding tone]. i basically went hoping once again for that silver bullet that was going to put all this to rest once and for all.
anyway, the most referred to book of the Bible was job (or at least the one that jumped out at me the most). in job 40-42 (which my wife read to me after the conference) when God is posing a ton of questions to Job here is what the Lord was saying to me:
who are YOU to question Me? who are you to question what I allow or don't allow?
another verse that comes to mind:
as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways and My thoughts than your thoughts - isaiah 55:8
i also thought of when peter questioned Jesus about john and Jesus basically said "what is it to you what happens with him? you just need to follow Me..." not really the same context as job or my own situation but it came to my mind so here it is.
