In Emotionally Healthy Spirituality: Unleash A Revolution In Your Life in Christ, Peter Scazzero writes, “Two-thirds of the psalms are laments, complaints to God. God grieves in Genesis for having created humanity (see Genesis 6:6). David wrote poetry after the death of Saul and his best friend, Jonathan, commanding his army to sing a lament to God (see 2 Samuel 1:17-27). Jeremiah wrote an entire Old Testament book entitled Lamentations. Ezekiel lamented. Daniel grieved. Jesus wept over Lazarus and cried out in grief over Jerusalem (see John 11:35 and Luke 13:34).”

Psalm 60:1-3 (MSG) “A David psalm, when he fought against Aram-naharaim and Aram-zobah and Joab killed twelve thousand Edomites at the Valley of Salt. God! you walked off and left us, kicked our defenses to bits And stalked off angry. Come back. Oh please, come back! (2) You shook earth to the foundations, ripped open huge crevasses. Heal the breaks! Everything's coming apart at the seams. (3) You made your people look doom in the face, then gave us cheap wine to drown our troubles.”
