Bible open at Psalms

King David, Thank you

Posted by

I know I’m not alone in saying that in my lowest moments, I turn to the Psalms. The Psalms are unusual in that they are considered sacred Scripture in Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. I felt absolutely destroyed by life today, struggling with feelings I find hard to convey, but thank God I reached for my Bible and turned to the Psalms. As usual, there was comfort to be found.

When I open my Bible it automatically opens at Psalm 37, such is the frequency with which I have turned to that Psalm for comfort in recent years. So I read through Psalms 37-40, and I will share just five verses that resonated with me today. Perhaps they will help someone reading this, or encourage someone to return to the Psalms or read them for the first time.

For my iniquities have gone over my head,
like a heavy burden, they are too heavy for me.

(Psalm 38:4)

I am feeble and crushed,
I groan because of the tumult of my heart.

(Psalm 38:8)

My friends and companions stand aloof from my plague,
and my nearest kin stand far off.

(Psalm 38:11)

Blessed is the man who makes the Lord his trust,
who does not turn to the proud,
to those who go astray after a lie!

(Psalm 40:4)

Trust in the Lord and do good,
dwell in the land and befriend faithfulness.

(Psalm 37:3)

I hope that many people reading this have had the great mercy of reading and being comforted by the Psalms. King David, thank you! Lord God, thank you! โค๏ธ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป
