Verse: “To You I will cry, O Lord my Rock: Do not be silent to me, Lest, if You are
silent to me, I become like those who go down to the pit.” (Psalm 28:1,
Introduction: Psalm 55:6; 28:1; 22:1–2

one ever told me that grief felt so like fear. I am not afraid, but the

where is God? . . . When you are happy, so happy that you have no sense of
needing Him . . . if you remember yourself and turn to Him with gratitude and
praise, you will be — or so it feels — welcomed with open arms. But go to Him

A door slammed in your face, and a sound of bolting and double bolting on the
inside. After that, silence. You may as well turn away. The longer you wait,
the more emphatic the silence will become . . .
is He so present a commander in our time of prosperity and so very absent a
help in time of trouble?”—C.S.
