I keep going back over David saying, “what would have become of me if I had not expected to see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living?” in Psalm 27:13 and Job crying out along similar lines in chapter 6. Job even says he is despairing, 6:14.
I know that our Lord knows we are but dust, Psalm 103:14.
1 Corinthians 7:29 Paul says we are to live as if the things of the world are “passing away” – not “engrossed in them”.
So I am asking for “more than I can think or imagine,” Ephesians 3:20 and praying He will cause me, Psalm 119:35, to be unengrossed in the things of the world.
