On Saturday's I join my friend Collette over at Jesus Loves Mums for Psalm Saturday.
A Psalm Saturday post will consist of a Psalm or a portion of one that spoke to you at some point throughout the week.
How about joining Collette and sharing your Psalm for this week??
" O Lord, how long will you forget me? Forever? How long will you look the other way? How long must I struggle with anguish in my soul, with sorrow in my heart every day? How long will my enemy have the upper hand? Turn and answer me, O Lord my God! Restore the sparkle to my eyes, or I will die. Don't let my enemies gloat, saying, "We have defeated him!" Don't let them rejoice at my downfall. But I trust in Your unfailing love. I will rejoice because You have rescued me. I will sing to the Lord because He is good to me." NLT
There are times when I am like David. Everything just seems to be crashing in all around me. I feel like satan is attacking me on every level from every angle. I feel like for every step I take forward, I slide two back.
At those times, I too, cry out to God..wondering if He's forgotten me or left me alone to be devoured by that roaring lion. It seems that no matter what I do..how much I pray, praise, or stay in the Word, satan is victorious over me.
But then I reminded, where is my faith? In Whom do I trust?
In those times I must remember that if He never poured out another blessing, my salvation is blessing enough. He rescued me from the very pit of hell!! How much more do I require???
God has been so faithful, even when things didn't go the way I wanted them to, because His way was better.
I will sing and praise Him. Why??
Because He is good to me......
