Psalm 77: 1-14 I cried unto GOD with my voice, even unto GOD with my voice; and HE gave ear unto me. In the day of my trouble I sought the LORD; my sore (pain and anxiety) ran in the night, and ceased not; my soul refused to be comforted. I remembered GOD, and was troubled: I complained, and my spirit was overwhelmed, Selah. THOU holdest mine eyes waking; I am so troubled that I cannot speak. I have considered the days of old, the years of ancient times. I call to remembrance my song in the night: I commune with my own heart: and my spirit made diligent search. Will the LORD cast off for ever and will HE be favourable no more: Is HIS mercy clean gone forever: Doth HIS promise fail for evermore: Hath GOD forgotten to be gracious: Hath HE in anger shut up HIS tender mercies? Selah.
And I said, This is my infirmity: but I will remember the years of the right hand of the MOST HIGH. I will remember the works of the LORD: surely I will remember THY wonders of old. I will meditate also of all THY work, and talk of THY doings. THY way, O GOD, is in the sanctuary: who is so great a God as our GOD? THOU art the GOD that doest wonders: THOU hast declared THY strength among the people.
Of all that I have gone through the past six weeks and I am still going through, I still have to praise my GOD. I have struggled with everything, but I know my GOD is merciful and loving. I know my GOD is in control. I have faith that HE is going to lift me up soon. HE is the light that shines in this dark time I am going through. I find sanctuary in HIS Word and praying to HIM. In the times I struggle and am so depressed, I know HE is there beside me. I find great comfort in that. Today, I feel HIS great strength working in me. I was able to feel normal and peaceful. I know HE is gently lifting me up to my feet again. HE always helps me and delivers me from the tribulations I suffer. Whether it be physical, spiritual, and yes even when my mind is filled with despair. HE loves me! I want to declare how great and wonderful GOD is and praise HIS glorious name!
