I am so troubled that I cannot speak.
5 I consider the days of old,
the years long ago.
6 I said, “Let me remember my song in the night;
let me meditate in my heart.”
Then my spirit made a diligent search:
7 “Will the Lord spurn forever,
and never again be favorable?
8 Has his steadfast love forever ceased?
Are his promises at an end for all time?
9 Has God forgotten to be gracious?
Has he in anger shut up his compassion?”
10 Then I said, “I will appeal to this,
to the years of the right hand of the Most High.”
11 I will remember the deeds of the LORD;
yes, I will remember your wonders of old.
12 I will ponder all your work,
and meditate on your mighty deeds.”
This past week I’ve been had a hard time seeing God in life and in school. I don’t know exactly what it is that makes me feel this way. I think I’m just realizing more and more the separation between God and the world. The more I try to seek God, the more I become disconnected from what the world thinks. In turn, being in the public school atmosphere that I’m at has made me feel backwards when I’m walking forwards. Anyways, God really comforted me this week when I read this passage yesterday.
Through whatever trouble I’m facing, and when I feel like God isn’t there, all I have to do is look back to the times He’s been there for me; and I know for sure that since He’s been there for me in the hardest of life’s circumstances, He will be there for me now. I guess it’s just all about perspective.
