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!
