Psalm 56:8-9 (JDV)

Psalm 56:8 You yourself have recorded my wanderings. Put my tears in your bottle. Are they not in your book?
Psalm 56:9 Then my enemies will retreat on the day when I call. This I know: God is for me.

Do you ever feel like no one actually cares about the troubles you feel? Are you tired of being ignored? Sometimes I feel like that. When I walk into a crowded room, and no one even acknowledges my existence, it’s hard to shake something like that off.

This psalm talks about God having a bottle into which goes all the tears — a book that records them. God cares. He can take care of us, because he knows and cares about what we are experiencing.

Lord, I sometimes don’t feel it, but I know you’re there, and I know you care.
