When the battle rages and exhaustion overwhelms, I devour the only medication that truly heals the soul. I rewrite comforting selections of Scripture and remind myself of my total dependence upon on the Lord. Here are some bits from Psalm 86 and 88. They are medicine for my soul.
O Lord, God of my salvation, I cry out day and night before you. Let my prayer come before you, incline your ear to my cry. My soul is full of troubles. I am a man without strength.
You are perfect in love, you are the answer to every question, to every need. Your word is the medicine that I need.
You, O Lord, are merciful and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness. Turn to me and be gracious to me. Give your strength to your servant.
Teach me your ways so I may walk in the truth. Unite my heart to fear your name.
I give thanks to you Lord with my whole heart. I will glorify your name forever.
