“Have mercy on me, O Lord…; my eye wastes away with grief yes, my soul and my body!” Psalm 31:9 Many of the Psalms, often called “the Bible’s songbook”, were born out of struggle. They capture our disappointments and fears, yet they always point us toward the faithful love of God. David wrote many of the psalms. His hope was not in his own strength, but in God. The Psalms invite us to pour out our hearts to God, because He has stored up His goodness for those who trust in Him. When in your deepest need, find God’s comfort in the Psalms.
