Few things immediately touch my life and change the way I think or feel emotionally right off the bat. It seems that it takes time to take hold in my heart and soul, but the other day in reading Psalm 77 I found myself changed. Perhaps it hit me directly because it was things that I already knew, but said in a different way that led to a deeper understanding of where I am going and what I am trying to do. And it seems all I am trying to do is find God and in Him maintain sobriety.
V. 1 I cried out to God for help;
I cried out to God to hear me.
To truly cry out to God is something that starts from your very core. It is not something that comes about from a circumstance in the outside world, but a change that starts within you. It is in the depths of pain and despair for God to help, but in order to help it must start for God to hear us. Your soul is at the point of pain that nothing, and I mean nothing, within this world will give this pain any ease. Your body is all in knots and just don’t know what to do. All you can hope for is for God to hear something and do something for you.
