This life is often messy and we can find ourselves swinging between confidence and faith, despair and anguish, and back again. Sometimes finding comfort in the midst of our circumstances seems like drawing a very long bow. Essentially here, the psalmist is saying, “Lord, I want to hope in you again.” And isn’t that what we all want? Isn’t that what we all need? 
A very long time ago, my husband and I built our first home. It was on the edge of a bay with a glorious 180 degree view. On a clear day you could see the north head of the bay—a very distinct point—very clearly. But there were days when it was hidden in the mist. Nonetheless, I knew that point was still there whether I could see it or not. I never doubted for a moment that it was still there on the horizon. 
So it is with God. There are days when I don’t feel his presence but I still know he’s there. It’s a choice I make to believe Him!
Question: When do you feel God’s presence the most? What do you do when you’re struggling to know he is still there?
