Psalm 38:10 My heart is pounding, my strength has failed me, and the brightness of my eyes is gone from me.
After disastrous consequences, my son knows that the Lord has heard his call. The Lord of his salvation has heard him call. With the help of family and community, his burdens have been lifted. But so many others live on the edge, terrorized by horrific experiences of war or poverty or injustice. Their hearts pound, and their strength is insufficient to the pressure.
O Lord, make haste to help them.MOVING FORWARD: Do you know someone suffering from a traumatic event? Offer to help them find the support they need to begin healing. And always, pray for them.
