As faithful as David was, there were also times in his prayers where he started to question God. However, he then reminds himself of all that God has done for him, and meditates on it..

Psalms 77 really convicted me and I really want to go after meditating on all the things God has done for me. I know my heart needs it.

Sisters, I just wanted to encourage you to find the time to meditate on some scriptures that stood out to you from today's reading. =)

Psalm 77:6-12

6 I remembered my songs in the night.
My heart mused and my spirit inquired:

7 Will the Lord reject forever?
Will he never show his favor again?

8 Has his unfailing love vanished forever?
Has his promise failed for all time?

9 Has God forgotten to be merciful?
Has he in anger withheld his compassion?"

10 Then I thought, "To this I will appeal:
the years of the right hand of the Most High."

11 I will remember the deeds of the LORD;
yes, I will remember your miracles of long ago.

12 I will meditate on all your works
and consider all your mighty deeds.

I loved reading the psalms this morning. I truly admire David's honesty when admits on how weak he is without God. I don't know if I speak for myself when I usually question where God is in certain situations. The question he is probably asking us is what will you do about it or where should you be? God hasn't left you.

thanks for sharing Lisa. It's good to have scriptures to help focus our minds. It's great to point the sisters to that.
