    I am encouraged by this psalm. It speaks volumes of a God acknowledging our humanness. God takes the opportunity to reveal he's wonders and mercies - the caring side of God known as his "goodness and mercy". In my own life's challenges, God has attending to my needs.His promise to me is in v21. (I never got my career off the ground as a Professor). Now 60yrs, I wonder what is God's plans for me.
