Psalm 42:7-11 Deep calls unto deep at the noise of Your waterfalls; all Your waves and billows have gone over me. The LORD will command His lovingkindness in the daytime, and in the night His song shall be with me; a prayer to the God of my life. I will say to God my Rock, "Why have You forgotten me? Why do I go mourning because of the oppression of the enemy?" As with a breaking of my bones, my enemies reproach me, while they say to me all day long, "Where is your God?" Why are you cast down, O my soul? And why are you disquieted within me? Hope in God; for I shall yet praise Him, the help of my countenance and my God.
Maybe I'm just writing to myself, but I feel like this
is where a lot of people are right now. My family has just gone through
the loss of a dear friend, and it seems like God doesn’t hear me cry.
I started asking questions like, where is God? Does He care? But then
I read this Psalm, and that's when it hit me. I may feel like God isn't
there, but in my heart I know He is. When someone you love dies, you want
to try to understand why this happened. What possible reason could God
have for taking my friend?
