Verse 1 is possibly the only light in the chapter...
1 O LORD, the God who saves me, day and night I cry out before you.What has always troubled me about this Psalm is how it ends. I hope that somewhere along the way the Psalmist found the God who saves.
Lord, help me bring your hope to people who are in this place.
18 You have taken my companions and loved ones from me; the darkness is my closest friend.
