Hurting Response

| | Comments (2)

Today's reading: Psalm 109:1-5

Being wronged, attacked or betrayed by someone whom you trust and love cuts deeply. It hurts! And in our pain, often times our gut reaction is to defend ourselves or to respond in kind with our words and actions. But that's not the example David puts before us in Psalm 109. In his distress he turns to God. David tells us in verse 4 "but I give myself to prayer." And that's precisely what we see--David candidly crying out to God, seeking comfort as he tells God about what's happening to him.

Is it your practice to "give yourself to prayer" when you encounter hardship or difficulty? When you pray, how does it influence you emotionally, spiritually and/or even physically? Tami

Spiritually, lifting my troubled heart to God reminds me that He's in control. They lends itself to am ability to physically rest, which also provides spiritual benefit.

At times I forget to give myself to prayer--yet my need right now is enormous
. When I do I experience deep refreshment and peace "not as the world gives!" Going to pray right now.
