In life there are times when we are overwhelmed by what is happening around and within us. It is like being caught in floodwaters with no way out. King David describes his life this way in Psalm 69. To the neck and rising explores his thoughts, feelings, emotions and attitudes throughout the Psalm. The journey that David takes is not dissimilar to ours and can provide us with valuable personal insights. Choices we make while in the place of the floodwaters determine whether we remain in that place of emotional turmoil or we begin to make steps towards recovery.
