V. The Great Controversy Suite, No. 4 - The Scent of Water
   by Pablo A. Aguilar

In the story of Job, Satan asked God for permission to attack Job and quickly swept away his flocks and herds, servants, houses, and children; one trouble succeeding after another. In the great controversy, God led His children by a way that they not knew, but He didn’t forget or cast off those who put their trust in Him. He permitted affliction to come upon Job, but He did not forsake him. Job's friends proved miserable comforters but he reassured himself with the expectation of change and the hope of resurrection. He said: “At least there is hope for a tree: if it is cut down, it will sprout again, and its new shoots will not fail. Its roots may grow old in the ground and its stump die in the soil, yet at the scent of water it will bud and put forth shoots like a plant.

Dedicated to my mother: because you endured hardship with patience and perseverance.
