Chapter-a-Day Psalm 6

Pain Please, God, no more yelling, no more trips to the woodshed. Treat me nice for a change; I’m so starved for affection. Psalm 6:1-2 (TM)

One of the encouraging things for me about the Psalms is that I can commiserate with David and the other writers. We’re all human and share a common human experience. I go through times when my relationship with God seems so strained. When I read David’s honest heart-felt emotion I say, "Yes! Yes! I know what that feels like!" I also understand that sense of faith underneath all of the frustration and despair.

I know God is for me. I know that He is good. I know that there is purpose for me in my circumstances. That doesn’t mean I won’t feel the pain or the emotions it invokes.
