Psalm 61

I was reading today when I came across Psalm 61:

1 Hear my cry, O God; attend unto my prayer.
2 From the end of the earth will I cry unto thee, when my heart is overwhelmed: lead me to the rock that is higher than I.
3 For thou hast been a shelter for me, and a strong tower from the enemy.
4 I will abide in thy tabernacle for ever: I will trust in the covert of thy wings. Selah.
5 For thou, O God, hast heard my vows: thou hast given me the heritage of those that fear thy name.
6 Thou wilt prolong the king’s life: and his years as many generations.
7 He shall abide before God for ever: O prepare mercy and truth, which may preserve him.
8 So will I sing praise unto thy name for ever, that I may daily perform my vows.

It sounds as if David was near the end of his rope (or very busy/concerned with many things) when he wrote it. I’ve been in that place several times (feeling overwhelmed) and God has always taken care of me. I just wanted to briefly point this out just in case someone who reads this blog may be in the same situation.
