Sunday Psalm

Have you ever had a time in your life where everything felt like a struggle?

Well that's where I am right now, dear readers. Nothing too serious...life just feels hard and stressful.

This too shall pass, but in the meantime I felt led to share a Scripture that really spoke to me tonight...

1 How long, O LORD ? Will you forget me forever?
How long will you hide your face from me?

2 How long must I wrestle with my thoughts
and every day have sorrow in my heart?
How long will my enemy triumph over me?

3 Look on me and answer, O LORD my God.
Give light to my eyes, or I will sleep in death;

4 my enemy will say, "I have overcome him,"
and my foes will rejoice when I fall.

5 But I trust in your unfailing love;
my heart rejoices in your salvation.

6 I will sing to the LORD,
for he has been good to me.

~Psalm 13


When David penned this Psalm, I'm pretty sure he was dealing with a whole lot more than I am, but I am still able to relate to these words. Though he obviously felt that God was taking too long to answer his cries for help, he still placed his trust in God's steadfast love and goodness toward him.

What an encouragement this is to me, and I pray that it will be to you as well.

Praying you have a blessed week,

  1. Hi Shannon,

    Nice to meet you!

    We are enjoying CC. I bought the foundations resource CD to help me get the graphics to use. Before that I did google searches of what we are learning and then copied them into a word doc - then added the words they need to memorize.

    Hope that helps! Feel free to use anything on my site!

    Blessings,
    Jill
