My tears have been my food day and night, while they say to me all the day long, "Where is your God?" These things I remember, as I pour out my soul (Psalm 42:3-4 ESV) The dark enclosure of sadness is a reality of life. For some, these are passing moments of glum. For others it seems to be an inescapable, constricting hole. Sometimes Christians tend to treat these emotional realities either as a moment to escape or worse, ignore them all together as ungodly. But the scripture, specifically in Psalms, is a tear-stained book. How are these times to be viewed? What are we to do with them and in them? This week we take another look at Prayer through our emotions and consider our prayer through our tears. In Psalm 42 and 43 the writer pours out to God the darkness he is in, but he also provides us a pathway to help us consider our own sadness. Take some time before Sunday to read through these songs/ prayers. Do they sound like you?
