Im not sure how this is going to go, but I had a friend tell me to read Psalm 88 so I had this thought- 1. Read the Psalm and apply that to a person you know as if the words were his/hers. 2. What would your response be to this person and what would you think? or just state your thoughts/feelings when reading psalms like this. can you relate? It is clear or at least as I see it that the Psalmist is expressing his honest thoughts about how he feels before God. He is in great terror and and suffering because of how he feels, but it is clear that God is his Father and he is a believer. I see in verses 9-12 that this Psalmist is actually in a beautiful state where he is rejoicing in the Lord and wants to praise Him even when he feels like God has left him for destruction. There is a lot to say, but Ill leave this open for discussion..
