Psalm 6:1-10 ESV - 1 O LORD, rebuke me not in your anger, nor discipline me in your wrath. 2 Be gracious to me, O LORD, for I am languishing; heal me, O LORD, for my bones are troubled. 3 My soul also is greatly troubled. But you, O LORD--how long? 4 Turn, O LORD, deliver my life; save me for the sake of your steadfast love. 5 For in death there is no remembrance of you; in Sheol who will give you praise? 6 I am weary with my moaning; every night I flood my bed with tears; I drench my couch with my weeping. 7 My eye wastes away because of grief; it grows weak because of all my foes. 8 Depart from me, all you workers of evil, for the LORD has heard the sound of my weeping. 9 The LORD has heard my plea; the LORD accepts my prayer. 10 All my enemies shall be ashamed and greatly troubled; they shall turn back and be put to shame in a moment. Languish

Lord, my feelings will lie, but You are always true. When my emotions are raw and I am exhausted I may feel abandoned, but You are here. I may feel punished, but Jesus took all my punishment. I may feel ignored, but You hear me and You answer according to Your word. What a blessing that You have given Your Word to counsel, to encourage, to strengthen, to restore, to help, to assure me of Your love and care. What a wondrous God!
