From Psalm 28
Hope from Today's Reading:
"To you, O Lord, I call; my rock, be not deaf to me. ... Hear the voice of my pleas for mercy, when I cry to you for help" (Psalm 28:1-2 ESV)
I agree with David here. Sometimes talking to God feels like talking to a rock.
You might cry so hard you fall to your knees. You can't speak anymore. It's just tears and hands reaching out to hold those knees, now drawn to your chest. You plead to Him again and again, but no matter. You open your eyes to the same old empty room, same old carpet, now littered with tissues. If He's listening, you think, He really doesn't care.
It's important in these moments to remember the many identities of our God.
He's your Rock, yes—He's a solid place to land in hard times and upon which to build your life. But He's also your Shepherd (John 10). He knows your voice, He sees your tears (v. 14). He's leading you to better places. And when you're too weak to follow, He picks you up and carries you the rest of the way (cf. Psalm 28:9).
And friend, He more than cares about your pain, your struggles, what you're going through. He gave His life to free you from it (John 10:15).
