Psalm 13 – Praying the Psalms Project

Have you ever wrestled with your own thoughts until you are completely exhausted?

I have.

Have you ever wondered if God has forgotten you?

I have. 

Have you ever been waiting on and answer?  

I have. 

Have you ever felt like you are loosing at life?

I have 

David, the man after God’s own heart, felt these things too. 

Psalm 13

How long, Lord? Will you forget me forever?
    How long will you hide your face from me?
How long must I wrestle with my thoughts
    and day after day have sorrow in my heart?
    How long will my enemy triumph over me?

Look on me and answer, Lord my God.
    Give light to my eyes, or I will sleep in death,
and my enemy will say, “I have overcome him,”
    and my foes will rejoice when I fall.

But I trust in your unfailing love;
    my heart rejoices in your salvation.
I will sing the Lord’s praise,
    for he has been good to me.

There Are DaysWe Move ForwardByLooking Back and Giving Thanks

Lord, I feel like You have forgotten me.   Are you hiding from me? 

I can’t stand to wrestle with the thoughts in my mind for one more minute. 

My heart is sad and heavy. 

How long will all of my anxieties triumph over me? 

Will you give me an answer to my questions?

Lord, pull me out of the darkness with your everlasting light.

So that my enemies cannot say they have overcome me or laugh with joy when I fall.  

I trust in You and Your unfailing love for me, Lord. 

I can rejoice in my heart, because my salvation comes from You. 

I will turn from my sadness and sing Your praise, Lord. 

When I look back upon my life, I can see that You have been good to me.

 – Amen
