Sat 090725 am Psa 56

Psalm 56 David; 13 vs.; --??
A response to when the Philistines seized him in Gath.

This psalm starts anguishing over enemies, turns to calling to God, and then reaffirming his intention to follow God.

56.8 kept my tears n your bottle. God remembers our struggles and hard times and the tears we have cried. The word tears is a poignant metaphor for our struggles.
56.13 that I may walk before God in the light of life. The words light of life seem to be the key here. The seem to articulate God's desire to have a relationship with God that is open to all.
