Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.
I am he, I am he who will sustain you. I have made you and I will carry you; I will sustain you and I will rescue you.
Psalm 142 Prayer for Help in Trouble. Maskil of David, when he was in the cave. A Prayer.
1I cry aloud with my voice to the LORD;
I make supplication with my voice to the LORD.
2I pour out my complaint before Him;
I declare my trouble before Him.
3When my spirit was overwhelmed within me,
You knew my path
In the way where I walk
They have hidden a trap for me.
4Look to the right and see;
For there is no one who regards me;
There is no escape for me;
No one cares for my soul.
5I cried out to You, O LORD;
I said, "You are my refuge,
My portion in the land of the living.
6"Give heed to my cry,
For I am brought very low;
Deliver me from my persecutors,
For they are too strong for me.
7"Bring my soul out of prison,
So that I may give thanks to Your name;
The righteous will surround me,
For You will deal bountifully with me."
A woman giving birth to a child has pain because her time has come; but when her baby is born she forgets the anguish because of her joy that a child is born into the world.
2 Cor. 12:9
But he said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness." Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ's power may rest on me.
“Blessed is she who has believed that what the Lord has said to her will be accomplished!"
For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us.
