Psalm 77 — The Yeti Version
Perhaps if I dig deep enough, that song can get me out of this rut.
This one is something like: “I’m usually good at this! But now I’m not. What made me good before? I think I wrote myself a song to help me with this… oh that’s right, God is forever faithful! I remember the time where he did something beastly for Moses!” Honestly, his recollection of the Moses story is fascinating because it mystically explains that God walked through the sea. For a reliable translation, please see the ESV version.
I always have asked for God’s help, and I always have confidence that he will hear me.
Whenever I’ve been in trouble, that’s what I done without worrying. But now, I’m having a tough time believing he’ll come through.
It’s gotten so bad that even the thought of God gives me grief. When I try to meditate, I just end up being discouraged.
I’m so tired of waiting — I can barely keep my eyes open, and I don’t want to talk to anyone.
But for some reason, I’m reminded of a time long ago
when I anticipated a dark night such as this by storing a joyful song deep in my heart. Perhaps if I dig deep enough, that song can get me out of this rut.
I think it went something like this: “Is God someone who would be mad forever?
Did he run out of patient love? Do is promises no longer apply?
Has he forgotten about grace? Has all of his compassion been replaced with anger?”
Wow, I think that’s song is doing the trick. The song is right — after all of these years, why would anything change?
I need to remind myself everything that Jesus has done. I will remember the great things you have done!
I will ponder your work on this earth. I’m going to think really deeply about this…
God, you’re different! All of the other gods are nothing compared to you.
You are the God who has done wonderful things and demonstrated how sound strong you are.
Back in the days of Egypt, you set your people free!
Even the red sea trembled before you! A body of water was scared when it saw you!
Your very presence summoned a wicked thunderstorm!
The lightning and the wind shook the ground.
You passed through that sea — walking a path but leaving no footprints.
You used Moses and Aaron to lead your people like sheep into freedom!
