The Cry of a Heart // Psalm 9

Some weeks are really hard, and not just hard, but flat out defeating. This week has been one of those weeks and honestly writing this week's blog has been hard. Because this week I feel more like David in the first few psalms when he felt like the world was against him and he wanted to give up. 

This week I settled into Psalm 9 and 2 verses in particular---verses 9-10.  Right now life seems a real struggle in a few areas and knowing I have a stronghold is stabilizing in the uncertainty I feel. And that if I seek Him, I will not be forsaken. This hope is about all I have to keep me going in the discouragement . 

If you feel any relation, hold onto this promise. 

The Lord is a shelter for the oppressed, a refuge in times of trouble. Those who know your name trust in you, for you, O Lord, do not abandon those who search for you.

In addition, take note and follow David's example. As mush as he felt discouraged and I'm sure wanted to throw in the towel, he always pointed to God. He knew he could cry out in brutal honesty but that God was always good.

Hold onto the promise that God is a shelter and is always there for you. Furthermore, remember this is your darkest place.
