Psalm 13

"How long, O LORD ? Will you forget me forever?
How long will you hide your face from me?
How long must I wrestle with my thoughts
and every day have sorrow in my heart?
How long will my enemy triumph over me?
Look on me and answer, O LORD my God.
Give light to my eyes, or I will sleep in death;
my enemy will say, "I have overcome him,"
and my foes will rejoice when I fall.
But I trust in your unfailing love;
my heart rejoices in your salvation.
I will sing to the LORD, for he has been good to me."

This Psalm has been challenging and comforting to me this week. When I hide my face from the Lord I only have despair, but when my face is turned towards Him it shines and blessings and deliverance come! Thank you Lord for pursuing me in my restlessness, holding me in my brokenness, and freeing me from my loneliness. Thank you for exposing my heart! The Lord is ALWAYS Good!

I think you meant to say "loneliness" at the very end not "loveliness"? Thank you for sharing this verse....it gives great hope and a good reminder in painful or hard times that God will not forget us....he hasn't left us! Amen! Thanks for sharing your heart!
