Singing the Blues in Psalm 6
There is healing in naming our suffering and hope.
“And it stoned me to my soul,” belts out Van Morrison as he described an experience of longing and catharsis as a kid. Whether a hunger or thirst or desire for healing, human longing is real. So too, the poet in Psalm 6 expresses the deep-lodged kind of longing that emerges from a soul in need.
