Bereft and Tumult

I have an ESV Bible that I have been trying to read more often.  I have been going through the Psalms.  You know how I love words.  OK maybe you do not but I do love them so.  Can’t you just feel these words?

Psalm 35:12 – My soul is bereft.

Psalm 38:12 – I groan because of the tumult of my heart.

I know.  My heart still aches.  My soul is still bereft.  There is little I can do to console myself.  As I talked to God, I am at a loss as to what to say.  No platitudes can help this.  Not that platitudes ever could.

This morning the weight is tremendous.  I know I have taken on someone else’s pain.  It is crushing them.  Lord be with them…
