Answers for Encouragement

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.”

Psalms 13:1–4

Some times life gets so busy that I don;t have a chance to read the emails that are not directly business related.  This evening I had the chance to catch up on the mailbox and read one of the email devotionals that I receive daily.  Wow, have you ever had a day when you can;t see your way out of the emotional cellar.   This passage of scripture really resonates with me at these times.  And this was my thoughts last night.  The stress of life and especially work stress  clouds my eyes and kicks the sparkle out of my soul.  Last night I can rememember praying to God something much like above –

Retore my joy, give me a fresh passion for this life and strength to see it through.   And even so Lord Jesus come quickly.

One great reassuring fact in moments like these is that the Lord hears these gutteral crys and has a plan and a future and hope for my very soul.  Amen
