David wrote this psalm as he hid in a cave from King Saul who wanted to kill him. If he wrote it today, it might sound a lot like this. Do you need to say this to God right now?
I cry out to the Lord today!
I need your know you care about me, dear Father.
Here are my complaints and troubles –
I am tired….very tired.
I feel lost….very lost. You know the way – please show me.
I can’t trust the people around me. They are my problem.
Look! There is no one here to help me. There is no one I can count on.
No one who cares. But I know you care, Lord. I can count on you – you are always on my side.
I desperately need you to hear me….
and rescue me!
I’m stuck in my problems and issues – they are too big for me.
Set me free, Lord! Get me unstuck!
And I will give you all the credit.
Everything good in my life comes from you. You are so good to me!
Thank you, Abba Father!
