This lovely praise song O My Soul (Casting Crowns) echoes in my head.
“Oh my soul
you are not alone
there’s a place where fear
Has to face the God you know
One more day
He will make a way
Let Him show you how
You can lay this down, you can lay this down…”
There are so many places we look for assurance when we are lonely, dejected. Jesus really does want us to run into His arms and throw all these cares to the side. Yes we will cry, yes we will ask why, yes we will…
There are so many places in Psalms to curl up with a coffee or tea and be encouraged.
“”May the Lord answer you in the day of trouble; May the name of the God of Jacob defend you.” Psalm 20:1
“Turn Yourself to me, and have mercy on me, For I am desolate and afflicted, The troubles of my heart have enlarged: bring me out of my distresses.” Psalm 25:16 & 17
“Give ear to my prayer, O God, And do not hide Yourself from my supplication. Attend to me and hear me; I am restless in my complaint and moan noisily.” Psalm 55:1 & 2
“But certainly God has heard me; He has attended to the voice of my prayer (s).” Psalm 66:19
“If I say ‘my foot slips,’ Your mercy, O Lord, will hold me up,” Psalm 94:18
“I cry out with my whole heart…” Psalm 119:145
Cry out with your whole heart. He hears you and and wishes to comfort you in your days of sorrow and trouble.
