Overcome by Distress and Sorrow

Share Article


As God began teaching me how to fight for my marriage through His Word, I began writing the date by the different verses that He spoke to me. On September 23, 2009 God gave me this verse. I call it “My Marriage Psalm”. It is exactly what God did for us and what we are believing He is going to do for you as you choose to trust Him and lean into Him.




Psalm 116:1-7

I love the LORD, for he heard my voice;
he heard my cry for mercy.
Because he turned his ear to me,
I will call on him as long as I live.

The cords of death entangled me,
the anguish of the grave came over me;
I was overcome by distress and sorrow.
Then I called on the name of the LORD:
“LORD, save me!”

The LORD is gracious and righteous;
our God is full of compassion.
The LORD protects the unwary;
when I was brought low, he saved me.
