Psalm 86:11 ” Teach me Your way, O Lord, and I will walk in Your truth; give me an undivided heart, that I may fear Your name.”

During the very darkest time of my life I would read  Psalm 86 in its entirety out loud every morning.  I was alone, isolated from friends and family, and in the middle of a very violent relationship.   I felt hopeless, helpless and totally alone.  As I read these words out loud, I could almost hear David reminding himself that the Lord was near.  And as he recalled all of God’s attributes…His great love, His mercy, compassion, and faithfulness, I too would be reminded of them and what God had done for me.  And in the end, just like David, this Psalm gave me the strength and courage to endure for one more day.
