How Much Longer, Lord?

How long wilt thou forget me, O LORD? for ever? how long wilt thou hide thy face from me? How long shall I take counsel in my soul, having sorrow in my heart daily? how long shall mine enemy be exalted over me? Consider and hear me, O LORD my God: lighten mine eyes, lest I sleep the sleep of death; Lest mine enemy say, I have prevailed against him; and those that trouble me rejoice when I am moved. But I have trusted in thy mercy; my heart shall rejoice in thy salvation. I will sing unto the LORD, because he hath dealt bountifully with me.
Psalm 13

Dear Lord,

I know you've answered many of my prayers, so I know that you can and do hear me. But sometimes, Lord, I feel like not even you can understand how I'm feeling and what I'm thinking. I guess I feel that way because I think that if you knew, you would do something about it.

It is then that I remind myself that you have your own plans for my life, and though I am unaware of it, it is for the best. Though I am in
want of many things, I am in need of nothing. I often get those two words mixed up. I sorrow and worry about the things I don't have and think that I need them.

Lord, please help me to distinguish between the things that I need and the things that I want. I know I would be a lot happier. Please help me to be content with that I have instead of always wishing for more. Help me to say with a grateful heart,
Thou hast dealt bountifully with me.
