I am exhausted from crying for help; my throat is parched. My eyes are swollen with weeping, waiting for my God to help me. Psalm 69:3
The Psalms are songs that share deep feelings. Sometimes praise. Sometimes despair and anger. This week Psalm 69 expresses our frustrations. Are you facing any struggles today? Feeling overwhelmed or anxious? Feeling like you are alone and things will never work out?
God cares for you. He invites you to pour out your heart to him. We can tell God exactly the way we feel. We can tattle on those who have hurt us. We can shout and make a fuss. We can come as we are—broken, confused, helpless—and lean on his help. He is there for us in the midst of the pain and sorrow. He always will be our guide.
Jesus says “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest.” (Matthew 11:28)
