I love reading the Psalms. They are such a dramatic mix of anguish and praise. Today I was reading Psalm 55 and it was no different. David had some serious drama in his life. He is going on and on about his enemies, his fear and anguish, you name it.
I have found myself doing the same thing throughout different points in my life. I go on and on to God about this person or that person, this situation, money, business, health…I could go on and on. Sometimes I get so caught up in myself that I find myself standing there with my fists clenched, not willing to let any of it go.
The interesting thing about Psalm 55, however, is that it ends with a bit of a zinger. After all of his ranting and crying out, David ends with this line:
But as for me, I trust in you.
Amen. May that be the constant cry of my heart and echo of my life. But as for me, I trust in you.
