  "I cried out to God with my voice -- to God with my voice; and He gave ear to me. In the day of my trouble I sought the Lord; my hand was stretched out in the night without ceasing; my soul refused to be comforted. I remembered God, and was troubled; I complained, and my spirit was overwhelmed.
You hold my eyelids open; I am so troubled that I cannot speak. I have considered the days of old, the years of ancient times. I call to rememberance my song in the night; I meditate within my heart, and my spirit makes diligent search.
Will the Lord cast off forever? And will He be favorable no more? Has His mercy ceased forever? Has His promise failed forevermore? Has God forgotten to be gracious? Has He in anger shut up His tender mercies?
The answer to all these is of course not - God is none of the above.
And I said, 'This is my anguish; but I will remember the years of the right hand of the Most High.' I will remember the works of the Lord; surely I will remember Your wonders of old. I will also meditate on all Your work, and talk of Your deeds. Your way, o God, is in the sanctuary; who is so great a god as our God? You are the God who does wonders; You have declared Your strength among the peoples. You have with Your arm redeemed your people. ..." --Psalm 77:1-15a

This is a passage that was given to Thom to help him deal with the situation that is going on with his family currently... pray for him; his parents are divorcing, and it's not at all a pretty thing. :(

  "And there is no creature hidden from His sight, but all things are naked and open to the eyes of Him to whom we must give account. Seeing then that we have a great High Priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession. For we do not have a High Priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin. Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need." -- Hebrews 4:13-16

God is not some hoity-toity high-and-mighty dude behind a throne who likes to watch us squirm. He knows exactly what we are going through, and has much compassion for us. He asks us to come boldly to Him for grace and mercy when we are at our low points, so that we can be forgiven and go on with life. (My study bible points out this is in great contrast to people who run from God out of shame, and never seek forgiveness and mercy. To come boldly to Him in confession is a wonderful privilege we have - to be free of the chains of sin and guilt, to repent and rejoice in our forgiveness!)

  Pray for me; I'm in a state of confusion/bad judgement. I need clarity, certainty, and perserverance.

Graduation tomorrow! How odd..

More verses tomorrow.

  I recieved a request to keep up the frequent verses. ;) So, with graduation in sight (the 16th!!), onward I go.

"Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their labor. For if they fall, one will lift up his companion. But woe to him who is alone when he falls, for he has no one to help him up. Again, if two lie down together, they will keep warm; but how can one be warm alone? Though one may be overpowered by another, two can withstand him. And a threefold cord is not quickly broken." --Ecclesiastes 4:9-12

Thom and I always applied the last part of that selection ("and a threefold cord is not quickly broken") to our relationship, saying a "cord" made out of the two of us and God would last, but a "cord" with just us and not Him would be breakable. I keep saying "threeford cold" instead of "threefold cord" ... he loves to laugh about that.

"Entreat me not to leave you, or to turn back from following after you; for wherever you go, I will go; and wherever you lodge, I will lodge; your people shall be my people, and your God, my God. Where you die, I will die, and there will I be buried. The Lord do so to me, and more also, if anything but death parts you and me." --Ruth 1:16-17

Thom sent those verses to me two years ago when he was away on a two-month trip... so they have a lot of sentimental value to me.

Can you tell I've been thinking about him tonight? Sheesh... :)
