Ever feel like you’re sinking in quicksand? Maybe you’re drowning in piles of work that never seem to end. Or buried under worries. Or weary from relationships that aren’t quite right but you don’t know how to fix. Perhaps you see things you want to change in yourself and feel trapped by your inability to take the next step.
At times like that, Psalm 130 helps me turn my sinking into prayer.
“Out of the depths I cry to you, Lord; Lord, hear my voice. Let your ears be attentive to my cry for mercy.”
(Dear Lord, with the Psalm writer, we turn to you, knowing you hear us. Pull us out of the quicksand and onto solid ground. Guide our steps. We ask in the name of our precious Savior, Amen.)
