Torn to Pieces

I have never used this word until now, but I must write that the torture of
these sufferings ripped open my heart. (Elizabeth) (June 5, 1965)

Today’s Readings: O LORD, my God, in you I take refuge; save me from all my pursuers and rescue me, Lest I become like the lion’s prey, to be torn to pieces, with no one to rescue me. (Psalm 7)

Prayer Meditation- Lord sometimes we can feel so hemmed in- like there is no escape from our troubles and problems- we feel like the lion’s prey. Like Elizabeth, we can feel abandoned and as if our heart has been torn to pieces. I know many of us praying now are dealing with illness, family strife, death of loved ones, depression, and the stresses of daily life. It seems there is no rescue and that we are torn to pieces. But Lord, it is in You that we find our refuge. And we are comforted knowing that You experienced all of this and that the rejection of those You came to save tears at Your Heart! Lord help us pray the Psalms with Your Lips and Your Heart because it is only You who are our Refuge and in You, we renew our strength like eagles (Isaiah 40)
