Honest Conversation

Today's reading: Psalm 102:1-28

Adversity, suffering, trouble and depression are a few of the words that came to mind as I read through Psalm 102. The psalmist is in distress, and in this emotionally low state, he is crying out to God. Yet even in his pain-filled condition, the psalmist keeps his eyes on God, drawing comfort by remembering God's sovereignty, character, eternity and promises.

What does Psalm 102 show us about praying in times of adversity? How do you talk with God when you're feeling distressed or experiencing hardship? When you're candid with God and tell Him exactly what you're feeling and what's in your heart, how does it impact your attitude and thinking? Tami

Tami,

I am not sure that I am understanding your questions, but I am willing to try and reply to them.

It is the BEST time to pray to God when we are experiencing hardships or feeling distress!
It gives us great comfort and confidence knowing we can trust God!
Talking/sharing it with the Lord is getting a burden off of our shoulders and knowing God cares and will keep His promises.
I know when I am distress that I can trust the Lord.

Charles Spurgeon said, “Great hearts can only be made by great troubles. The spade of trouble digs the reservoir of comfort deeper, and makes more room for consolation.
