When confronted with distress in others, words dry up in our throats. If the words we seek do come out, they sometimes seem awkward or out of place. Thus, the best commentary on the prayer of Psalm 102:1-12 may be the blank page. Silence.
Psalm 31 gives us the opportunity to explore and express our lives of faith.
A higher view of God’s sovereignty over nature holds that God is at the root of all activity—that he controls the quantum fluctuations of every sub-atomic particle in the universe, from the big bang (or before it, if that makes any sense) to the end of time.
The pain and questions I was left with after our second loss pushed me into the Word deeper than before, not necessarily to find answers to my questions but for comfort in my grief and an understanding of God’s sovereignty.
