I find the Psalms fascinating, and beautiful. The humanity in them transcends time and culture. People haven't changed all that much in the basic wants and needs.
I think I rarely experience feeling abandoned by God. My feelings of separation are far cooler than that, more of distance than of distress.
Which is, I fear, a manifestation of my own personality rather than anything about God. I have often had trouble maintaining an emotional connection.
But God created me that way, so I suppose I shouldn't despise myself for it. Just strive to do better.
