PLEASE READ THIS FIRST: Psalm 55
What do you sense the Lord saying to you in this passage?
“But as for me, I trust in you.” (Psalm 55:23)
This is more like a Journal entry than a song.
David is enduring the bitterness of betrayal, and he is venting with God.
His pen and prayer become his outlet for his inner turmoil.
I have had journal entries that have had similar raw, emotional venting.
I have never been betrayed like this, but I do share with David his hope in the Lord.
This is what motivates my journaling, I am trusting Him as I express my heart.
Too often we let worry churn in our hearts and minds, but we don’t release them.
They hold power over us when we bottle them in, they overwhelm our hope and joy.
As a Jesus follower, I am thankful for my time with the Lord in my journal.
Especially thought this pandemic, it has helped me process what I am feeling.
As I talk things through with him, he guides my thoughts and feelings for the better.
‘Oh, what peace we often forfeit, Oh, what needless pain we bear.
All because we do not carry everything to God in prayer!’
Are you processing your thoughts and feelings with the Lord, or carrying them alone?
Lord, I cannot control my circumstances, but I can keep them from controlling me. Help me to continue to share my joys and struggles with You, so that You can help me rise up over all that happens in my life!
