Started the day reading Psalm 143. Noted how the psalmist responds to difficult, overwhelming, heart-rending experiences as related in vv. 3-4—

I will meditate on the days of old; I meditate on all Your doings; I muse on the work of Your hands. I stretch out my hands to You; my soul longs for you, as a parched land (vv. 5-6).

He does not sit in despondency; he proactively seeks the Lord. This is the exact opposite of the natural tendency to find solace in any thing other than the Lord.

Answered some emails; worked on Sunday morning sermon. Bible class at the Ring’s in the evening.
