Encouragement from the Psalms

Suffering is universal and crosses over time and the ages…

But so does God.

You are never alone, never unheard, never left without help or a means of escape.

God will come through for you.

Read the words to David’s song and hear the plaintive cry of his heart. Perhaps it echoes your own heart cry:

Lord, do not rebuke me in your anger
    or discipline me in your wrath.
 Have mercy on me, Lord, for I am faint;
    heal me, Lord, for my bones are in agony.
 My soul is in deep anguish.
    How long, Lord, how long?

 Turn, Lord, and deliver me;
    save me because of your unfailing love.
 Among the dead no one proclaims your name.
    Who praises you from the grave?

 I am worn out from my groaning.

All night long I flood my bed with weeping
    and drench my couch with tears.
My eyes grow weak with sorrow;
    they fail because of all my foes.

 Away from me, all you who do evil,
    for the Lord has heard my weeping.
 The Lord has heard my cry for mercy;
    the Lord accepts my prayer.
 All my enemies will be overwhelmed with shame and anguish;
    they will turn back and suddenly be put to shame.”

Psalm 6 NIV
