What have I done to deserve this? I know a lot of us ask that same question because of the situations we are going through. No matter the cause of your pain, God can help you get through it and overcome it. There are some techniques that I’ve found that work to bring heaven down to surround me and to put a coat of healing salve on my soul. The first thing I do is pray; not just any prayers, but I unload my feelings, I cry, I get emotional, and pour out my heart to God. What daddy can stand to see his child broken? Then I will sing; sometimes I just make up my own songs of travail, pleading with God to have mercy on me and take away my pain. Then I praise Him through the pain. After the tears dry, I feel like I’ve been cleansed and a sense of peace coats my soul. My problem may still be a problem, but I’ve pleaded my case before the Almighty and I just have to wait for His reply.
A Psalm of David. Hear my prayer, O LORD; give ear to my pleas for mercy! In your faithfulness answer me, in your righteousness! Psalms 143:1
