How long, O Lord? Will you forget me forever?
How long will you hide your face from me?
How long must I take counsel in my soul and have sorrow in my heart all the day?
How long shall my enemy be exalted over me?
Consider and answer me, O Lord my God;light up my eyes, lest I sleep the sleep of death,
lest my enemy say, “I have prevailed over him,”
lest my foes rejoice because I am shaken.
But I have trusted in your steadfast love;
my heart shall rejoice in your salvation.
I will sing to the Lord,
because he has dealt bountifully with me.
I don't feel a strong need to explain my heart. It is in a state it hasn't been before. I sat in my car this evening and sobbed this prayer in front of my God. I know He is faithful. I know He is good. I know He has His best interest for me which always has to do with giving Himself the glory that He deserves. For that I am thankful.
Circumstances are not always amazing. Seasons change four times a year times it seems a million in my life.
Last night I cried as I considered how hard this year has been, and sorrowed in this new season.
My God is good. He is true. He is strong. He is faithful. My fears are stilled and silenced at His throne.
My desire in each day, in each circumstance, always, is to give Him glory and witness well for Him.
Today I sorrow. But come some tomorrow, I will sing songs of joy. I know this full well.
