Psalm 69 I am sunk in the abysmal swamp where there is no foothold; I have reached the watery depths; the flood overwhelms me.
But I am afflicted and in pain; let your saving help, O God, protect me; I will praise the name of God in song, and I will glorify him with thanksgiving.
But I pray to you, O LORD, for the time of your favor, O God! In your great kindness answer me with your constant help.
Are there days when we feel like we are sinking and overwhelmed? If we continue to try on our own, we will no longer be able to find a foothold. We must turn to God. "Turn to the Lord in your need, and you will live." Alone, we will continue to sink, but if we seek God, " be glad, may your hearts revive! For the LORD hears the poor, and His own who are in bonds He spurns not.”
TURN TO THE LORD Prayer, Scripture, the Sacraments TURN TO THE LORD
Our Lady of Mount Carmel, pray for us.
