What are your "rivers of Babylon"?  By what measure do you determine your happiness or unhappiness?  Identify in your mind a personal experience of being exiled and describe how that felt to you.  To what do you promise faithfulness when you are feeling lost or in despair?  What is your greatest fear?  Where are you aware of God's faithfulness in your life?  How do you handle anger in your life?  When you perceive that the whole world is in chaos, and in addition to that, your own personal world is also out of control, how can this psalm be helpful to you?

I am like an owl of the wilderness, like a little owl of the waste places. I lie awake; I am like a lonely bird on the housetop. All day long my enemies taunt me; those who deride me use my name for a curse. For I eat ashes like bread, and mingle tears with my drink, because of your indignation and anger; for you have lifted me up and thrown me aside.

Page 43 You will rise up and have compassion on Zion, for it is time to favor it; the appointed time has come.

What is the appropriate way in which to deal with hurts and resentments from the distant past?  What does this psalm teach about relating to other persons who have experienced losses and feel as though they are in "exile"?  What does this psalm say, if anything, about hanging on to past memories? " If you have been chased by someone in the midst of road rage, or if you have been in a severe thunderstorm or hurricane, or if you have been in some other kind of chaotic situation, think how these words would feel to you: "God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble" (v.
