How Long?

Psalm 6:2-3
New Living Translation (NLT)
2 Have compassion on me, Lord, for I am weak.
    Heal me, Lord, for my bones are in agony.
3 I am sick at heart.
    How long, O Lord, until you restore me?

Psalm 13[a]

For the director of music. A psalm of David.

1 How long, Lord? Will you forget me forever?
    How long will you hide your face from me?
2 How long must I wrestle with my thoughts
    and day after day have sorrow in my heart?
    How long will my enemy triumph over me?
3 Look on me and answer, Lord my God.
    Give light to my eyes, or I will sleep in death,
4 and my enemy will say, “I have overcome him,”
    and my foes will rejoice when I fall.
5 But I trust in your unfailing love;
    my heart rejoices in your salvation.
6 I will sing the Lord’s praise,
    for he has been good to me.
There are some times when God seems so far away; but He isn't.   He's as close as my next breath.  He is my next breath.  Tonight I'm hurting from the Rheumatoid Arthritis.  I shouldn't fret or wonder where God is in all of this, because he is ever faithful and worthy of my trust.  How long must I wait for God?  God's timing is not mine.  I will wait however long it takes.
Right now, however, I just need some sleep.
