'Grant me a willing spirit'

Restore to me the joy of your salvation
and grant me a willing spirit, to sustain me.
David was in trouble and troubled when he made this plea to God.

While our own troubles and travails might be different than David's, we, too, can find joy of salvation in one who can sustain us. God can help us find that willing spirit, that willingness to seek out a restoration, the prayers to sustain us.

Does this mean all troubles will cease? No, David still had his challenges. So do we. But God can sustain us through our own challenges.

So happy to find your blog! My husband suffered a stroke in January of this year, and it has been understandably challenging for both of us as well as for our young kids. I look forward to reading more.
