Forsaken?

November 1, 2012

Do you know which psalm is quoted most often in the New Testament? You may have guessed the familiar and beloved 23rd Psalm, but actually it is Psalm 22. This psalm begins with David’s poignant, heart- breaking words that were quoted by Jesus on the cross, “My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?” (Matt. 27:46; Mark 15:34).

Imagine the situation David must have found himself in that caused him to cry out to God in this way. Notice that he felt forsaken and abandoned: “Why are You so far from helping me?” (Ps. 22:1). He also felt ignored: “O my God, I cry in the daytime, but You do not hear” (v.2).

Ever been there? Have you ever looked up into the heavens and wondered why it seemed that God had abandoned you, or was ignoring you? Welcome to David’s world. But for every plaintive cry David expresses, there is a characteristic of God mentioned that rescues him from despondency. Through it all, David discovers that God is holy (v.3), trustworthy (vv.4-5), a deliverer and rescuer (vv.8,20-21), and his strength (v.19).

Do you feel forsaken? Seek the Lord. Rehearse His character. And “let your heart rejoice with everlasting joy” (v.26 nlt).

Lord, sometimes I feel as if You don’t care about
my life. When those times come, please remind me
of Your character as You did David. Help me to
lean on You again and know that You are there.
Even when we don’t sense God’s presence,
His loving care is all around us.

Read: Psalm 22:1-8,19-26

Those who seek Him will praise the Lord. Let your heart live forever! —Psalm 22:26
Bible in a Year:
Luke 22-24

Hi Everybody!

(((HUGS)))

I bought lots of snickers and then nobody showed up for trick or treat.

I MAY just have to eat them all myself!

What to do....what to do!

In my previous neighborhood, it went on for about four hours constantly.

That’s why i bought so much candy. I am on a second floor apartment now...maybe the parents just went to 1st floor doors. I DID have my porch light on though...that is supposed to be the “signal”.

Can't tell you how many times I've tried to reply....it's just futile counting.

Sunny and warm and happy to tell you all my family is well. It's Halloween and the kids are partying.

Hope this gets through without too many delays; I share your frustration.

In my youth, Trick-or-Treat was a multi-night proposition. I lived in Rochester, New York when my Dad was attending graduate school and the girl next door went out starting about the 15th of October.

A wonderful post thankyou very much.
I was serving on the Australian destroyer HMAS Vampire in 1961 when we did a similar jackstay transfer with the famous American WW2 aircraft carrier USS Hornet.
I got goose pimples at the memory just by looking at your posting.
I also served with your ships in Vietnam and had many beers with your guys in Subic Bay 1966-67.
May the good LORD bless all who serve in the U.S. Navy.
And God bless the USA and Australia.

Hey Ma! All the tricksters have gone home. They tell me it was -20 last year and too cold to go ringing doorbells.

+17 and a whole bunch of little tigers, bees, and werewolves.

Sounds like the little ones had a good time. They are always so cute. ((HUGS)) The ones don’t go to indoor places are all bundled up and cuter still. -20 is a tad cold to be out going from door to door.

We were dark for the first time. My Dad usually sits on the bench in the foyer and reads between door bell rings. He can’t anymore. My Mom is a tad more mobile, but very,very slow. And I get home late...that is when the teens come. They aren’t nearly as cute or much fun to talk to....I opted out.

I have worn my extreme cold weather issued military boots twice. They are not broken in. They work well. But, they are too warm if it is above +10.

First year ever that I gave out no candy. Hubby didn't want the noise of hundreds of kids and the doorbell every few minutes so the lights were out. Normally, we have about 200 of them. Wasn't meant to be but, perhaps next year!

I really missed seeing all the very young in costume!
