Summarizing my situation from my "living it" perspective has always helped me.
You have so many blessings! While Job didn't really come to mind as I read your summary, Paul's thorn did....
I copied one of my favorite blessings for you (And everyone else here!) below.
May God's Love be with you, always - in the Son.
1 Peter 2:1-3, 4-10 (From The Message Translation)
1 -3So clean house! Make a clean sweep of malice and pretense, envy and hurtful talk. You've had a taste of God. Now, like infants at the breast, drink deep of God's pure kindness. Then you'll grow up mature and whole in God.
4 -8Welcome to the living Stone, the source of life. The workmen took one look and threw it out; God set it in the place of honor. Present yourselves as building stones for the construction of a sanctuary vibrant with life, in which you'll serve as holy priests offering Christ-approved lives up to God. 9 -10But you are the ones chosen by God, chosen for the high calling of priestly work, chosen to be a holy people, God's instruments to do his work and speak out for him, to tell others of the night-and-day difference he made for you—from nothing to something, from rejected to accepted.
