E52: Psalms A - Not All Rainbows and Snoopies

The Bible in 30 Seconds or Less

"I walk into a hospital room. I introduce myself and ask if they would like to speak with a chaplain. I sit, we chat, creating space for whatever pain, discomfort, fear, or uncertainty they are experiencing. And more often than not before I walk out of the room I reach into my suit coat for my Bible. I open it to a well worn crease and read the words of Psalm 88: "O Lord, God of my salvation, when, at night, I cry out in your presence, let my prayer come before you; incline your ear to my cry. For my soul is full of troubles, and my life draws near to hell.""Life is not all rainbows and Snoopies. And the good news of the Psalms is that they meet us in every aspect of our life, especially the pain,discomfort, fear, and uncertainty."
