A Wife Loved Like The Church

Truthful Thursday – Psalm 13

Posted on: July 16, 2009

“O Lord, how long will you forget me? Forever? How long will you look the other way? How long must I struggle with anguish in my soul, with sorrow in my heart every day? How long will my enemy have the upper hand? Turn and answer me, O Lord my God! Restore the sparkle to my eyes, or I will die. Don’t let my enemies gloat, saying, “We have defeated him!” Don’t let them rejoice at my downfall. But I trust in your unfailing love. I will rejoice because you have rescued me. I will sing to the Lord because he is good to me.” Psalm 13

This is my favorite Psalm and quite possibly one of my life verses. More times than I can count, God has used these verses to speak to my life. Recently, He used them again. Starting in verse 5, this psalm addresses the idea of choice. David is getting knocked down, beat up and defeated on all sides. God seems to be nowhere in sight. David is hurt and lonely. He cries out, but God doesn’t answer. Yet. Yet, still David chooses to praise God. David chooses to rejoice in his Maker. David chooses to sing to God, because in all things and through all things (whether we believe it or not) God is good.

I want my life to be a life of well made choices. I want my life to be a life that chooses, whether I feel it or not, to praise my Savior. For He is good. All the time. Whether I feel it or not.
