Yes, Trouble

today's reading.
Psalms 77   I cry aloud to God, aloud to God, and he will hear me...

the blog.
When you think about it, hardships, trouble, tough times all describe what we should expect as we live out the Christian life, and we see that pretty clearly here in Psalm 77. Now I've lived long enough to know this--well. Even so, somehow, in the back of my mind there's still this little thought that life should be easy and carefree, and if and when I hit that rough spot, I can pray and God will fix it. Well that's not reality. It's not what God's Word tells us. So when I allow myself to indulge in this thinking, it pulls me off track from God and that, in turn, typically leads to disappointment and discouragement.

So how can we use Psalm 77 to keep us on track with God and encourage us when we're in the middle of tough times? What does it tell us about taking our troubles, concerns and problems to the Lord? Tami
