a light in a dark place

Life is seldom all sweetness & light.

David wrote this psalm regarding his time in the cave of Abdullah - not a good time in his live.

Someone may resonate with this psalm this morning.

I know it's pretty dark, but the last 5 words express hope & faith.

If someone is feel the same darkness this morning that David was feeling, remember the last 5 words are as true for all of us as they were for David.

Psalm 142

 I cry out to the LORD;

  I plead for the LORD's mercy.

 I pour out my complaints before him

  and tell him all my troubles.

 When I am overwhelmed,

  you alone know the way I should turn.

Wherever I go,

  my enemies have set traps for me.

 I look for someone to come and help me,

  but no one gives me a passing thought!

No one will help me;

  no one cares a bit what happens to me.

 Then I pray to you, O LORD.

  I say, "You are my place of refuge.

  You are all I really want in life.

 Hear my cry,

  for I am very low.

Rescue me from my persecutors,

  for they are too strong for me.

 Bring me out of prison

  so I can thank you.

The godly will crowd around me,

you are good to me."
