In the Gap

What happens in the gap between lament and praise?

How can we pour out grief, sorrow, disappointment, anger and all the dark things we feel [as the first 29 verses] followed by sincere, confident, thankful praise [verses 30-36]? David goes from drowning to delighting… how?

Something significant and profound happens in that gap. So pray without ceasing, whatever your circumstances. The Lord, our mysterious and almighty God, is the one who can turn our weeping into dancing.
