Today's reading: Psalm 120:1-7
Psalm 120 is one of the psalms that closes without a resoulution to the physical hardship that's impacting the psalmist. However, we can see that God hears the psalmist's cry of distress and answers him (vs. 1). While I prefer a total happy ending package (physical, spiritual and emotional resolution), that's simply not how life typically goes. So I am thankful for the example set out in Psalm 120 because it reaffirms what I already know in my heart that no matter the situation, I can have peace when I choose to rest in and rely upon God!
How do you tend to interact with God when you're in the middle of turmoil or difficulty? Are you comfortable crying out to and talking candidly with Him? What's one example of how prayer has strengthened and sustained you through a difficult situation? Tami
