Psalm 6:2-3 MKJV Have mercy on me, O LORD, for I am weak; O LORD, heal me, for my bones are troubled. My soul also is exceedingly troubled; but You, O LORD, how long?
I hate not being in control. Yet so much of my life is out of my control--disability & limitations, the food sensitivities that have plagued me the last few years, my struggle in my writing/speaking career, finances... Need I say more?
I struggle. I fight, argue, plead and get angry at God. But, you know what I learned as a very sick teen? God doesn't want phony, shallow followers. Our struggles with Him, life and faith are no surprise to Him. Only as we're real with Him, does He become real to us.
If we come to Him, He answers, not always the prayer on our lips, but always the need of our hearts.
v.9 The LORD has heard my cry; the LORD will receive my prayer.
Psalm 7:17 MKJV I will praise the LORD according to His righteousness, and will sing praise to the name of the LORD most high.
