“Be merciful to me, O God, be merciful to me!
For my soul trusts in You;
And in the shadow of Your wings I will make my refuge,
Until these calamities have passed by.” Psalms 57:1
David doesn’t ask God to make it all go away.
Lord, may every calamity we go through deepen our relationship with You. And here’s a simple poem . . .
In the depths
of my darkness
when it hurts
to even breathe
and hold me close
