5 You are forgiving and good, O Lord,
abounding in love to all who call to you.
6 Hear my prayer, O LORD;
listen to my cry for mercy.
7 In the day of my trouble I will call to you,
for you will answer me.
Psalm 86:5-7 NIV.
I am finding the Psalms really speaking to me at the moment. My life is full of blessings and good things but I still struggle. The kids really, really played up last night. I struggled to get them to bed and Jacob was particularly naughty! He just wouldn't do what he was told at all and Emma was the same. I also struggle with low moods sometimes. The past week I have been quite unmotivated and idle.
Not a pretty picture I paint! Aren't these verses wonderful and comforting though! God HEARS our prayers. He answers us when we face trouble. All we have to do is CALL to him. Of course, we should be praying every day and thanking God for his forgiveness and blessings. However, we have a God who sticks by us through good and bad. When it all gets to much I can CALL to him and he will answer me in some way.
Thank you Lord that you love me, a wretch like me! Undeserving of your forgiveness or love, nowhere near to being the woman you want me to be, learning constantly through you, being humbled every day when I think of your mercy upon me.
