Groanings will come.
Seemingly endless nights of grief, tears, and even pain.
Soul-deep weariness will happen in your life.
Maybe it already has.
Maybe it is just around the corner.
that though the grief will come,
the end of the chapter brings a powerful conclusion:
“The Lord has heard my supplication; The Lord will receive my prayer. Let all my enemies be ashamed and greatly troubled; let them turn back and be greatly ashamed suddenly.” –verses 9-10
The Lord hears. The Lord will receive. And the enemies will be ashamed–whether that be real, spiritual, or the result of being in a fallen world. The Lord will sustain.
Endure, for the Lord hears.
