Discouraged and Sad?
“Why am I discouraged? Why is my heart so sad? I will put my hope in God! I will praise him again— my Savior and my God! Now I am deeply discouraged, but I will remember you— even from distant Mount Hermon, the source of the Jordan, from the land of Mount Mizar. I hear the tumult of the raging seas as your waves and surging tides sweep over me. But each day the Lord pours his unfailing love upon me, and through each night I sing his songs, praying to God who gives me life. “O God my rock,” I cry, “Why have you forgotten me? Why must I wander around in grief, oppressed by my enemies?” Their taunts break my bones. They scoff, “Where is this God of yours?” Why am I discouraged? Why is my heart so sad? I will put my hope in God! I will praise him again— my Savior and my God!”
Psalms 42:5-11 NLT
Is your heart discouraged and sad? Has life left you bewildered and broken? Put your hope in the only One who won't fail you. Praise Him for His constant companionship, His steadfast love, His unfailing mercy, and His absolute faithfulness! Praise your way out of the pit. Place your trust in the One who can rescue you in any situation. Let your heart be glad in Him! Today is a new day, another chance. Embrace the moment and seize the opportunity. God has given this day to you. Celebrate!! Rejoice! Don't let the circumstances dictate your joy, let your joy overcome the circumstances. “Always be full of joy in the Lord. I say it again—rejoice!” Philippians 4:4 NLT
