Lament Psalm

Our pastor has been asking us to write a Psalm. My day yesterday inspired a lament.

I am hard pressed on every side.

I am left to choose between right and easy.

I am broken in spirit.

I am without hope.

I am left with unanswered questions.

Only you can I turn to for strength.

Only you can I turn to for hope.

Only you can give me wisdom and understanding.

So I will seek You, trust You, ask You.

I will be grateful You are there.

A few entries ago I had a day where rejoicing in the day the Lord had made was pretty darn easy. Yesterday, not so easy. Like most of life it turns out substitute teaching has good days, average days and really bad days. Writing this Psalm really did help me get perspective on the whole thing. Coming home to my family did me a whole lot of good as well. Thanks, you two.
