  1. This is a good visual! Those who are far from Christ will not praise Him when they are dead. It is difficult when we are in anguish and cry out to God and He is silent. In those times I learn to trust Him based on His character and past workings. Praise God that He is faithful.

    1. You are right, Mandy, they will not and cannot praise JESUS anymore! There is no take two for them in hell and there is no such thing as purgatory even. This is what the psalmist was trying to allude to in his agony. For this reason, this Psalm is part of the Bible and glorifies GOD in spite the perceived frustration. Indeed, GOD seems silent but He is very much working in the background. We only have to trust Him, trust His heart! Grateful to GOD for these specific photos that are available for free. Andrea Piacquadio, like Ben White, Cottonbro (and many more), has lots of those “acted scenes” that come in handy to sets of verses like this one. Blessings to you and Nathan.

    1. The good thing here is that the psalmist still talks to GOD. Although his frustration is shown, he was never irreverent to the point of cursing. Blessings to you and your family!

      1. So true to note the psalmist doesn’t curse. Cursing and cursing God during trials is so common and acceptable today, what a contrast and what a lesson for modern people with that observation

        1. Amen! In effect, it gives an example for generations to come. It seems the one who added this as a chapter of the Book of Psalms was inspired by GOD to see the treasure in these prayer. Still, these prayer pales in comparison with JESUS’ reverent prayer to GOD the FATHER in Gethsemane.

    1. Thank you, Crissy! Grateful to GOD for His inspiration. The series has lots of possible lessons that we can derived. I’d like to point out the communication/prayer/talking to GOD part. Indeed, GOD is there to listen even the most anguish statements. JESUS understands as He walked with humans. So it is ok to release everything to the Triune GOD as long as it is still reverent like the psalmist did. Blessings to you and your family!

        1. Grateful to GOD for what He reveals to all of us, Crissy, through His Word. Likewise Crissy, good morning! Blessings to you and your family! I’m still praying that GOD will guide/lead you and your team in catching “fish” on Fry day!

    1. Looks like the psalmist might have a feel or an the idea, Chado. Poetic it is and Ezekiel 37:3-6 comes to mind; where because of hearing the Word of GOD, these “dry bones” have connected, formed back flesh to be in full human form and with GOD giving them breath to live. Blessings to you and your family!
