Today's reading: Psalm 61:1-8

Words like mighty, warrior, leader, talented, king and powerful come to mind when I think about David (who authored Psalm 61). I picture him as a godly giant. He was, after all, a man after God's own heart. But being "all in" for God doesn't mean we won't have times when we feel discouraged, stressed, fearful, overwhelmed, even depressed.

"[F]rom the end of the earth I call to you when my heart is faint" (vs. 2).

Thankfully, we don't have to stay in a place of feeling faint-hearted. David demonstrates this in Psalm 60. With his focus solely on God, David tells God that he is struggling, recalls God's past faithfulness and then asks God to strengthen and protect him going forward. As he talks with God in this manner, his heart is moved. So much so that David's final statement is one of praise and continued commitment to serving God.

Do you reach out to God when your heart is heavy? What does that conversation typically look like? What impact does telling God your struggles and recalling how He has provided and protected you in the past have on your attitude and heart when you're in the middle of a difficult situation? Tami
