Psalm 86 Comfort

Once we have given our lives to God, we can reach out to God in humility in the times that are the darkest and find light. The comfort we need is available by calling upon God in our time of need and opening our hearts to guidance (teach me thy way). Sometimes we create our own troubles by making life more complicated than it needs to be. We allow warring ideas to confuse us. Spiritual guidance always gives an integrated perspective (please unite my heart).

God delivers us from the depths because of God’s faithfulness. We can depend on the support of Spirit in the midst of our troubles, God responds to our needs regardless of our worthiness. We are comforted by the Presence of the Divine with us in the midst of our problem. God’s mercy is a safe haven in the storms of life.

And so it is! Amen!
