Psalm 69:3,16 GW I am exhausted from crying for help. My throat is
hoarse. My eyes are strained from looking for my God. ...Answer me, O
LORD, because your mercy is good. Out of your unlimited compassion,
turn to me. ...
Psalms is not all about comfort and hope. It is a book of raw and real
emotions and pain. God doesn't want us putting on some Christian
"front." He never promised a life of ease and roses.
He said life would be hard, that we wouldn't always understand, that
our hearts might get broken and there would Be times of tears.
Not much to our commitment to Him if we bail every time things get
hard. Those are the very times He wants to offer guidance and hope if
we but acknowledge our pain and come to Him for help.
It is ok to cry, hurt and grieve as we turn to Him.
