And the Psalmist gets real. He is angry. He wants revenge. He feels alone and abandoned.
Sometimes we feel this way. Sometimes we want these things. Sometimes we get lost in a world of Psalm 137.
But Psalm 138 is hopeful. "Even though I walk in the midst of trouble, you preserve me." There is hope even in our most irrational, frustrating, awful times. There is hope.
That's what the message is. In the midst of our anger and fear and frustration. There is hope.
Do you have hope? I pray you do!
