Psalm 30

Summary: David praises God, recounting a time when God turned His back on him only to forgive him again out of love.

Response: I am often short-sighted in the same way I feel David is here. It wasn't "I screwed up so God turned away," it was "God turned away until I convinced Him to turn back." The second implies that David didn't do anything wrong, just that God for whatever reason decided to abandon David. Lord, I know full well that, if I feel distant from You, it's that I've moved. Keep me close to You daily and hourly.
