Be gracious to me, Lord, because I am in distress; my eyes are worn out from angry sorrow—my whole being as well...But I trust in You, Lord; I say, “You are my God.” (Psalm 31:9,14)
We’ve all felt it at one point or another: distress, anger, or sorrow that wears us out.
Distress, anger, or sorrow changes us; at least, what we do with it changes us. When we sit in it, it becomes attached to us. It begins to define us. Oddly, we might even begin to get comfortable with it, as if we can’t imagine our lives without it.
But when we trust God through it, we let His perspective ease our own. His truth ebbs into our experiences. We claim His authority and trust Him to guide our next steps, no matter how blinded by darkness and confusion we might be.
No matter what we experience, we can claim, “You are my God,” then trust Him.
