"Why is this happening to me? Where is God in my anguish?"
Knowing our hearts, God has spoken powerful words of comfort. Psalm 10, for example, is God's word to those who have been victimized by others. It guides people into knowing God in the midst of being violated.
Can this ancient text help us in our pain today? Yes, because God is present and listening. What others may have meant for evil, God means for good.
