The wisdom of remembering the truth of it all

Just living with not knowing the "why", instead of fabricating one in my mind, that is the expression of faith in God's sovereignty and wisdom.

In Psalm 13, David laments in his soul with great sadness.

1How long, O LORD? Will You forget me forever?
How long will You hide Your face from me?
2How long shall I take counsel in my soul,
Having sorrow in my heart all the day?
How long will my enemy be exalted over me?
3Consider and answer me, O LORD my God;
Enlighten my eyes, or I will sleep the sleep of death,
4And my enemy will say, "I have overcome him,"
And my adversaries will rejoice when I am shaken.

Then he turns it around with one word "But".

5But I have trusted in Your lovingkindness;
My heart shall rejoice in Your salvation.
6I will sing to the LORD,
Because He has dealt bountifully with me.

David is wise to remind himself of God's character. I am wise to do the same.
