Psalm 86:15 But you, O Lord, are gracious and full of compassion,
slow to anger, and full of kindness and truth.
16 Turn to me and have mercy on me;
give your strength to your servant, and save the child of your handmaid.
Are you having one of those days that is not going as good as you would like. Consider first, you may have caused some of the wrongness by something you did or failed to do. Weight is one of my problems and has been for a long time. Two things I have done is eating wrong and not exercising enough. This weather is not helping. Two things I have been doing is choosing smaller portions and working more outside in early morning hours. It is a tolerable balance, but sometimes I get up feeling out of balance.
But I do not worry about the balance in my God relationship in the same way partly because of the words in this Psalm. My God is slow to anger, gracious and compassionate, and abounding in steadfast love. God cares!
