Seasons of sorrow are common, even for those who love and serve the Lord. As Alistair Begg reminds us, crying out honestly to God, just as Jesus did on the cross, is not sinful, but supported by biblical example. Psalm 13, for example, begins in pain—but by the end, the despairing psalmist is able to look beyond his circumstances and trust in God with a joyful heart. Through Christ, that same victory is available for all who feel forgotten.
