This gives me hope! It shows me David was real. Real with his emotions. Real with how he felt. Sometimes my emotions are such a roller-coaster ride. Wake up joyful, depressed and hour later, peaceful the next, followed by frustration. Sigh....
|A myriad of emotions!|
I do believe as we grow in the Lord, the roller-coaster does even out, but I also believe as we strengthen, sometimes tougher stuff is placed in our path because God knows we have grown some and tough stuff is His way of keeping us close to Him.
Reading the Psalms makes me feel like David is a kindred spirit! One who has been there and done that! No matter how much David messed up at times he always turned back to God. That is my goal! To always keep close to God no matter how badly I stuff up!!!
Ps 30 v 8 - 12: I cried out to You, O Lord; and to the Lord I made supplication: (9) What profit is there in my blood when I go down to the pit? Will the dust praise You? Will it declare Your truth? (10) Hear, O Lord, and have mercy on me; Lord, be my helper! (11) You have turned for me my morning into dancing; you have put off my sackcloth and clothed me with gladness, (12) To the end that my glory may sing praise to You and not be silent. O Lord my God, I will give thanks to You forever! (see? emotional roller coaster!)
My encouragement to you today is to know that no matter your emotion, God understands it and He remains truthful and loving and available to, and for you.
