Feeling separated from God can be painful - spiritually, emotionally, even physically.
It can feel oppressive. Overwhelming. Heavy. Consuming. Leaving you full of guilt or shame.
You may feel lost. Abandoned. Rejected. Alone. Hopeless. Despised.
But there is hope! No matter how far away God seems at the time, you can turn back to him. You can confess the sins that trouble you. (v.18).
The Lord is waiting patiently. Waiting for you to turn back to Him. To seek Him out.
Just as David cries out to God in verses 21 - 22; you can try out to the Lord also.
"Lord, do not forsake me, do not be far from me, my God. Come quickly to help me, my Lord and my Savior"
He is waiting with open arms to welcome you.
