When My Heart Is Overwhelmed

Passage: Psalm 61:1-8
Service Type:

Man is born unto trouble, as Job said, and Jesus said man shall have trouble.  Our Scripture tonight was written by David after he had returned to his throne following his forced exile because of Absalom's rebellion. When David hears that Absalom had been killed, he was heartbroken. David wrote this psalm and poured out his heartbreak to God.  He lifts his voice to the Lord and seeks the only one who can help him in his hurt. David was walking through one of the darkest valleys in life, but out of that darkness of soul comes this beautiful psalm. His prayer gives us hope for our hearts when we feel overwhelmed.
