Psalm 142 ~ When I Feel Abandoned


A personal confession based on the Psalms.

When I Feel Abandoned ~ from Psalm 142

When I am in distress
I cry out LOUD to Yahweh.
Show me Your favor and kindness!
I pour out my problem to Him,
I lay out my trouble before Him,
I cast my care upon Him,
Because He takes care of me.*

When I am overwhelmed,
He knows the path I should take.
He knows the traps that have been laid for me,
And He leads me around them.

When I feel abandoned,
With no one to help,
I cry out to Yahweh;
He is my stronghold,
My shelter, my safety.
He is all I have.
But He is all I need ~
And all I want.

When I am beaten down,
Yahweh hears my cry
And rescues me
From those who attack me,
Those too strong for me.
He brings me out ~
Praise His name!
His people gather around me
(I am never really alone)
For Yahweh is bountiful toward me.

* “Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time, casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you” (1 Peter 5:6-7).
