Writing Your Own Psalm

It’s wonderful to know that we can go to God with all our complaints.  God listens where many people don’t, for they don’t like to hear complaining.  When you take your troubles to the Lord in an open way, cleaning out all your hurts and frustrations, God will give you a sense that God is listening and helping you with what is bothering you.

Take each verse of this psalm and see how the sacred writer yearns for what you and I long for as well.  If you were to write your own psalm modeled after his, what would it look like?

Wednesdays are devoted to the reading of the Psalms,
one a week across the three-year cycle.

Psalm 142
