Psalm 144

Listen, Lord, and hasten:
~~hear my plea.

Teach me the unheard language of peace;
~~let me learn to speak through my tongue of tears.

Words of war increase my fear:
~~they have become too heavy for me to bear.

But Your word is great:
~~You can create from death.

If you leave me, who can lead me?
~~If you retreat, my hope will be like the weary wail of the
last leaf, leashed to a snow-leaning tree.

Somehow this reminds me of how Job must have felt! And when Jesus said "God why hast thou forsaken me?" I guess we all worry about being abandoned by God at various times. With me, this is my own fear talking and my own need to develop more faith.
