Psalm 13

Those of us who truly are leaning and relying daily on our Lord can well understand David's cry of "How Long?" We wait for a day when our change comes, as Job says. We wait, we wait. We know God loves us, we know His word is true and powerful, we know He has heard our prayer...and yet, the long long daily wait. A wait of patience, a wait of thanksgiving. A waiting filled with trust and yet such yearning and worries.

-C




Psalm 13

For the director of music. A psalm of David.

1 How long, O LORD ? Will you forget me forever?
How long will you hide your face from me?
2 How long must I wrestle with my thoughts
and every day have sorrow in my heart?
How long will my enemy triumph over me?

3 Look on me and answer, O LORD my God.
Give light to my eyes, or I will sleep in death;

4 my enemy will say, "I have overcome him,"
and my foes will rejoice when I fall.

5 But I trust in your unfailing love;
my heart rejoices in your salvation.

6 I will sing to the LORD,
for he has been good to me.
