Devotional: Why Is This Happening To Me

Scripture – Psalm 44: 23-26

Theme: It is okay for us to cry out to God, or to complain to God, or even to scream and yell at God.  God understands our pain and loves us anyway.  The Book of Psalm contains over 40 psalms that are “laments” which are a way to cry out to God in our pain and our need.  As a theologian once said, “God is a big boy…He can handle our laments.”  But we must work not to remain in lament.  Eventually, God calls us to return.
