Today's reading: Psalm 102
The writer of Psalm 102 is definitely stressed and, in his own words, distressed. He's in a hard place. We've all been there, right? My attention was caught by how this man conveys what he's going through and what he's feeling so clearly to the Lord, and he doesn't seem to be holding anything back. But then, once he gets everything out, we see a shift in focus from himself and his woes to God and His greatness, eternality and faithfulness.
So how might you use and draw on Psalm 102 to help you respond and deal with hardship and, like the psalmist, move from complaint to praise? What does this passage show us about how hardship can draw us closer to God? Tami
