Helpful Talks

| | Comments (2)

Today's reading: Psalm 41:1-13

When we find ourselves under attack from others--people spreading lies about our character, doing things to harm us financially, hindering our moving forward or succeeding in a particular area--it hurts. David was no stranger to being treated poorly by others. I am thankful for the example he puts before us in Psalm 41 of candidly talking with God about the hurt and pain he is experiencing, and was drawn to the way he ends his prayer with the self-reminder of God's love, faithfulness and provision.

"By this I know that you delight in me: my enemy will not shout in triumph over me. But you have upheld me because of my integrity, and set me in your presence forever" (vs. 11-12).

Is it your practice to talk with God about your struggles, pains and hurts? What impact does talking openly and honestly with God have on your thinking, attitude and actions? Tami

The last few months have been difficult for my family. It's comforting to know that God's in control, that He hears us when we call to Him, and that He actually wants us to pour out our hearts to Him.

I really appreciate your line of questioning. I "thank God" for just about everything and quick to do it; yet I'm not so great at telling him I'm struggling with a certain thing and need his help. I'm learning in my journey of faith that opening up and telling God my weakness and let him know how I feel will change my attitude, actions and thought process. It's hard, because it humbles us! I pray in the days to come I will do a better job with my vertical so my horizontal is not so hard! Thanks Tami
