My soul is weary with sorrow

“My soul is weary with sorrow;
    strengthen me according to your word.

NIV Psalm 119:28; KJV Psalm 119:28

Sadness and tears have overtaken me. I cry out the the Lord “Save me o Lord, deliver me”. My human frailty annoys me. I cry out the the Lord “Make me wise o Lord, make me strong”. I wept and drowned in my own sorrow. I cried out to the Lord “Lift up my spirits o Lord, help me defend myself from myself.”

Psalm 119

Turn, Lord and deliver me

“Turn, Lord, and deliver me;
    save me because of your unfailing love.”

NIV Psalm 6:4; KJV Psalm 6:4

When the dark clouds cover my horizon, who do I turn to? When the enemy knocks at the door of my soul, who do I turn to? When I’m desperate in my human weakness, who do I turn to? I turn to the Lord, mighty and strong. He knows my heart and He knows my troubles.  He is my Light in the time of darkness. I cry out to the Lord: “Deliver me Lord, save me because of Your unfailing Love.”

No One Cares For My Life

“3 When my spirit grows faint within me,
    it is You who watch over my way.
 In the path where I walk
    people have hidden a snare for me.
 4 Look and see, there is no one at my right hand;
    no one is concerned for me.
 I have no refuge;
    no one cares for my life.
 5 I cry to you, Lord;
    I say, “You are my refuge,
    my portion in the land of the living.”

NIV Psalm 142:3-5; KJV Psalm 142:3-5

When troubles arise in our life, who do we turn to? Who will wipe away our tears? Who lifts up our spirit? The Lord mighty and strong! He is our refuge in times of troubles and doubts. Reach out to the Lord. Call on His Name. Seek His help. His Love surrounds us every day of our lives.

Tears

“You number my wanderings;
Put my tears into Your bottle;
Are they not in Your book?”

NJKV Psalm 56:8; NIV Psalm 56:8

Have you ever cried yourself to sleep? Have you ever wondered how much longer until your troubles end? I have. My friend, just as God knows every hair on our head, so He knows every tear that we’ve cried too. He wouldn’t give us anything that we couldn’t handle. He is strengthening us, He is shaping us to fit His mold. We are much stronger than we think we are. GOD IS FOR US! Those who sow in tears, will reap in joy!

Entangled?

“Mine eyes are ever toward the Lord; for He shall pluck my feet out of the net.”

KJV Psalm 25:15; NIV Psalm 25:15

Entangled in the problems of all kinds? Look up! Keep your eyes on the Lord. He will deliver you. Trust Him. His Love for you is stronger than the soul can hope and the words can express. Your solution is found in Him. Get on your knees and pray.

Psalm 25

Psalm 25_15

A Cheerful Heart

“A cheerful heart is good medicine,
  but a crushed spirit dries up the bones.”

NIV Proverbs 17:22; KJV Proverbs 17:22

Keep your heart cheerful. Do things you love. Enjoy small moments. Make memories. Don’t hold grudges. Forgive. Let go of pride, anger, envy. Those will eat away your heart and make you sick. Let Jesus handle your troubles; give it all to Him. He WILL heal your heart.

Proverbs 17

Cheerful heart
