Psalms 31:7 -- On Considering Our Trouble

"I will be glad and rejoice in thy mercy: for thou hast considered my trouble; thou hast known my soul in adversities;"
Psalms 31:7

I like the idea of the Lord considering our trouble.  Sometimes we're worried about things that other people wouldn't be, and lots of people might dismiss our particular troubles as silly or small because our troubles aren't theirs.  The Lord though is able to understand things from our perspective, and while he doesn't always agree with the way we see things, he helps us with *our* troubles because they are troubles to us.

Today, let's trust the Lord, who considers us personally and knows our souls in our adversities.  He understands, even when no one else can, and he can help us if we go to him in prayer and ask him.  And let's also work on being more compassionate to others.  God will teach us all how to have more faith and to handle difficult things, but we aren't all learning the same things at the same time.  Even if we don't understand other's troubles, perhaps we should consider that we are all facing things that are hard for us, and we know what that feels like.
