We have a healthy diet in our home, but recently we enjoyed a “cheat day”. It was a day of debauched eating! We indulged in several delicious deviations from our norm. The next morning Kristy and I sat in the living room drinking our coffee. She looked at me and said, “You led me astray!”

Recently I read Psalms 138:8 which says, “The Lord will work out his plans for my life— for your faithful love, O Lord, endures forever. Don’t abandon me, for you made me.” [NLT]. Notice that in a single verse David declares a truth about God and his doubts about the very truth he declared. On one hand, he understood that the Lord would work out his plans for David’s life. On the other hand, David felt the need to cry out, “Don’t abandon me, for you made me.”
