why is my heart sad?
so something kind of alarming happens in the gospel today. Jesus, upset with the Pharisees who demand that He prove who He is, leaves them. He gets back in the boat and goes somewhere else. the Pharisees probably felt like they won. but they lost everything.
the thing that leapt out at me today though was the Psalm. why is my heart sad? and it is so often. but it's so reassuring to read about other people who are sad, too. it reminds me that I'm not alone... and that there will be joy at the end of the sadness. why am I sad? I will hope in God.
God, please help me to put all of my trust in you, so that I don't make you sigh deeply like you did at the Pharisees and go away from me. please help me to do as the Psalmist says, and trust in you.
