Psalm 13 Captures My Attitude


Long enough, GOD — you’ve ignored me long enough. I’ve looked at the back of your head long enough. Long enough I’ve carried this ton of trouble, lived with a stomach full of pain. Long enough my arrogant enemies have looked down their noses at me.

Take a good look at me, GOD, my God; I want to look life in the eye, So no enemy can get the best of me or laugh when I fall on my face.

I’ve thrown myself headlong into your arms— I’m celebrating your rescue. I’m singing at the top of my lungs, I’m so full of answered prayers. (‭Psalm‬ ‭13‬:‭1-6‬ MSG)

I find myself feeling the way the Psalmist does in this passage on occasion. It is NOT appropriate for me to feel sorry for myself and to exhibit these negative thoughts. God has blessed me beyond anything I deserve! I have found that He is absolutely faithful…sometimes, even when I am not!

Prayer: LORD…Help me to keep my attitude
Right. Thank you for loving me and intervening in my life. I love you for that!

  1. We are still humans, Daryl, and pain hurts. We are made perfect by suffering. We don’t like it, but His ways are higher than our ways. I find comfort reading that David and Job (and others) wondered what the heck was going on at times. We do the same thing. Feel better!

  2. Thank you my dear brother. Exactly the way I feel many, many times. I too am blessed far beyond what I deserve! I love you and Joyce dear friend and brother. Ted
