Psalm 13 is “an individual lament for circumstances where the worshiper is on the verge of despair, his powers of endurance spent” (ESV Study Bible).
•It’s ok to tell God your feelings.
•It’s ok to ask Him questions.
•You’re not alone in feeling like you can’t endure.
•And even with all those questions and hard emotions, it’s possible to end a lament on a hopeful note like the Psalm below. ——— “I’m hurting, Lord—will you forget me forever? How much longer, Lord? Will you look the other way when I’m in need? How much longer must I cling to this constant grief? I’ve endured this shaking of my soul. So how much longer will my enemy have the upper hand? It’s been long enough! Take a good look at me, God, and answer me! Breathe your life into my spirit. Bring light to my eyes in this pitch-black darkness or I will sleep the sleep of death. Don’t let my enemy proclaim, “I’ve prevailed over him.” For all my adversaries will celebrate when I fall. Lord, I have always trusted in your kindness, so answer me. I will yet celebrate with passion and joy when your salvation lifts me up. I will sing my song of joy to you, the Most High, for in all of this you have strengthened my soul. My enemies say that I have no Savior, but I know that I have one in you!” Psalms 13:1-6 TPT ——— Don’t push down or ignore those big emotions and unasked questions. Go to God. He can handle it and is so very faithful to guide us
