November 8, Psalming ThoughtsBeing at Peace Among the Frazzled

Are you frazzled, stressed, or worse, overwhelmed and depressed? When we read Psalm 116 we see this is not a new phenomena. For the patient reader of Psalm 116 we are encouraged to know this is not new, nor are we alone. Better yet, the Psalm gives us directions for a way forward. This advice does not come from theory, but from someone who knows this:

The cords of death entangled me,
The anguish of the game came upon me.
I was overcome by trouble and sorrow. Psalm 116: 3-4

Do we preach, study and pray this Psalm because we’re all in such sad shape? No, we do so mostly as preventative medicine, so we can, “Be at rest once more, O my soul.” ~ Psalm 116: 7

Scripture Reference: Psalm 116
