The Psalmists give us permission to lament. They show us how very human it is to doubt, express anger, be confused, but then they lead us to the possibility of accepting God’s ways and resting in God in spite of difficulties. They lead us to hope.
Psalm 13: How long, O Lord? Will you forget me forever? How long will you hide your face from me? (1)….
But I trusted in your steadfast love; my heart shall rejoice in your salvation. I will sing to the Lord because he has dealt bountifully with me (5-6).
Psalm 61: Hear my cry, O God; listen to my prayer. From the end of the earth I call to you, when my heart is faint. Lead me to a rock that is higher than I (1-2)....
So I will always sing praises to your name, as I pay my vows day after day (8).
The Christian way is to turn to Scripture for help.
