Today's reading: Psalm 31:1-24
David has a wonderful way of expressing his feelings and thoughts to God as he goes through many different life circumstances, and we certainly see that in Psalm 31. I couldn't help but notice that even in the middle of a distressing situation, David's calling out to God overflowed with his love for God, trust in God and gratefulness for who God is and what He has done. My heart was especially drawn to David's final words in verses 23-24.
"Love the LORD, all you his saints! The LORD preserves the faithful but abundantly repays the one who acts in pride. Be strong, and let your heart take courage, all you who wait for the LORD!"
When you're experiencing difficulty, how does telling God that you love and trust Him impact your mindset and outlook? What about when your life circumstances are good? Why is it important to have open and honest dialogue with God about our feelings and needs? Tami
