Do you control "it", or does "it" control you? "It" points to something deeper and darker, something that oppresses us universally - and something that Jesus came to free us from. The question is, how can we help free others from "it"?
Sometimes life comes at us in ways we wish it didn't, and we need to express our sorrows, our frustrations, our complaints to God. That's called a lament, and the Psalms teach us how to do just that...and they reveal that God actually wants us to bring our laments to him!
