After what I’ve experienced in the last psalm, “I’m determined to watch steps and tongue so they won’t land me in trouble.”TM
But, Lord, let me cry out to you in my pain! I don’t understand why you let things happen the way you do. Sometimes, I feel that you don’t really care about me at all. I know that “…we’re all puffs of air. Oh! we’re all shadows in a campfire. Oh! we’re just spit in the wind.”TM But, I’m here now! Here I am and I don’t know what to do!
I guess there is only one thing for me to do: Trust you! “When you put us through the fire to purge us from our sin, our dearest idols go up in smoke.”TM So, all I can do is pray. I know I’m only here on this earth for a short time, and I’ll soon be gone. That’s OK! But Lord, hear my prayer! “Give me a break, cut me some slack before it’s too late and I’m out of here.”TM
