“Our soul has had more than its fill…”


Psalm 123:3 Have mercy upon us, O Lord, have mercy upon us, for we have had more than enough of contempt. 4 Our soul has had more than its fill of the scorn of those who are at ease, of the contempt of the proud. 

What gets my attention here is v.4 “Our soul has had more than its fill…”. It’s not an intellectual burden, or a physical burden, but a spiritual burden – a burden of the soul. I felt that today. A heaviness. Almost a sense of despair, of being at the very end of my capacity. Not sure that I’ve experienced it quite that that before. I’m better tonight. Why? I prayed as the psalmist prayed in our passage, “Have mercy upon me, O Lord…”.

Lord the burdens are too great for me. I cannot bear them. And so I give them to you. Let me take your yoke tonight, that you might pull for both of us in the days to come. You are my hope and trust. Do not forsake me, dear Lord. Amen.

One thought on ““Our soul has had more than its fill…”


    You don’t need to have your soul burdened. As a fellow member of the body of Christ, I am here to pray for you and help you. We all are. God Bless.
