Psalm 73: 21-22 ” When my heart was grieved and my spirit embittered, I was senseless and ignorant; I was a brute beast before You.”

The Psalmist realized that anguish and despair changes us…that bitter suffering and grief makes us numb, irrational, and at times irresponsible for word or deed…even when addressing God.  The Psalmist freely admitted that he was far from the person he usually was.  And we, like the Lord, must remember then that grief effects everyone and that the same grace and mercy  He extends, we must also.
