Reading Psalm 30

I was reading Psalm 30 this morning. Since I’ve been living on the brink for over 25 years I find verses 9-12 resonate with me. Lord, “What profit is there in my death, if I go down into the pit? Will the dust praise you? Will it tell of your faithfulness?…you have turned for me my mourning into dancing; you have loosed my sackcloth and clothe me with gladness, that my glory may sing your praise and not be silent. O Lord, my God, I will give thanks to you forever!”
Luther chimes in: “If God did not uphold and sustain us after he made us, we should long since, even in our birth and cradle, have perished and died.”
