“But you, O Lord, be not far off;
O my Strength, come quickly to me.”
Psalm 22:19 (NIV)
Words of David; he was exhausted. His enemies are all around him. He is weak and emaciated; those near him have left him as dead.
David calls out to God, asking Him to come quickly to his aid. We sometimes feel we are facing a terribly low time in our lives. We do not care about doing anything or going anywhere. We sit in a funk and ‘vegetate’. Then we realize what causes us to fall into these times. We call out to God to guide us. We learn we are stronger than we believe because He is our strength.
We try to learn ways to combat the low feeling so we can go about our daily plans.
1.) Better sleep
2.) Better diet
3.) Moving around
4.) Praying for others
5.) Being thankful for the good days
6.) Reading Scripture
Each of these seven points has helped me move through some difficult times. King David called out to the LORD. Hannah called out to God. Jesus called out to the Father. That means we can as well.
