I sought the Lord in my day of trouble

Psalm 77:1-9 (JDV)

Psalm 77:1 I sound off to God, crying out to God, and he will listen to me.
Psalm 77:2 I sought the Lord in my day of trouble. My hands were continually lifted up all night long; My throat refused to be comforted.
Psalm 77:3 I think of God; I groan; I meditate; my breath becomes weak. Selah
Psalm 77:4 You have kept me from closing my eyes; I am troubled and cannot speak.
Psalm 77:5 I consider days of old, years long past.
Psalm 77:6 At night I remember my music; I meditate in my heart, and my breath ponders.
Psalm 77:7 “Will the Lord discard forever and never again show favor?
Psalm 77:8 Has his covenant faithfulness ceased perpetually? Is his promise at an end for all generations?
Psalm 77:9 Has God forgotten to be gracious? Has he in anger withheld his compassion?” Selah

I sought the Lord in my day of trouble

The worst part of times of crisis and depression is the terrible feeling of being abandoned by God. Only those who have known the favor of the LORD can know the depth of this feeling. Would it be better not to have faith at all, than to experience times like this? No, it is better to have a LORD to seek in my day of trouble.

Thank you LORD — for a relationship so wonderful that we miss you deeply when we cannot sense your presence.
