"Have mercy on me , O LORD, for I am in trouble: mine eye is consumed with grief, yea, my soul and my belly." Psalm 31:9
Everyone has troubles. Some troubles are self imposed, some come through the willingness of our friends and family to pass their troubles on to us and some by others whom we don't know at all, but they wreak their havoc on whomever is in the way. Either way, the only way to rest assured that your troubles will come to an end so that their is understanding on your part, is to pray to God.
David cried out loud with pain to God because David knew that his prayers would be heard and answered. He had seen the work of the mighty hand of God in his life and the life of those around him. David knew that God was his answer to his problems. I hope you know that God is your answer to your problems. There's no trouble like the kind of trouble the heart generates when you try to hide your problems from God.
God will answer your prayer. Call out to God with your troubles. Again, even if you caused the problem, God's forgiveness is bigger than your problem, bigger than your mistakes, bigger than your indiscretions, bigger than your sin.
