Day 42, Psalm 42

What do you do when you feel distant from God? When your experience with God doesn’t seem as “electric” as it was in the past? Journalling is one way I can begin sorting out my feelings and acknowledge them. The questions in verse 11 are great sentence starters for a journal, or a prayer.

Why am I feeling so discouraged?

Why am I restless?

As I explore these questions, I may find the answers and I may not. Maybe the answers will come after some time passes. In the meantime, this psalmist gives us powerful words to conclude our journal entry or prayer.

I trust you, LORD!

I will praise you again because you help me, and you are my God.

We are in good hands, even when we are restless and discouraged. God will help us.

See you tomorrow for Psalm 43
