Reading: Psalm 86 (Click to read text)
I find that sometimes when a situation gets me down, I need to talk about it to help me process and reflect. Sometimes, when no one is around, I find myself praying to help me do just that.
In today's Psalm, we read, "Give ear, O Lord, to my prayer; listen to my cry of supplication. In the day of my trouble I call on you, for you will answer me." It's comforting to know that God listens when we cry out, especially in times when we may not see or feel God's presence.
The Psalms are full of these same cries. The next time you feel like you have nowhere to turn, turn to God or perhaps spend some time reading the Psalms. I bet if you look hard enough, you will see or feel God, even in the worst of situations. --Chad Hershberger, Camp Mount Luther Director
