“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 ‭NLT‬‬


We must be careful to not embrace pain in such a way that we forbid God from coming in and turning on the light. David in psalms admits the pain of his storms with raw honesty, but he does not stay there. He reminds himself that things aren’t always stormy then suddenly things begin to shift. When in the darkness we feel as though we’ve always been there but it’s just not true. God was faithful in the past and God will be faithful again. David urges himself to put his hope in God because Morning will come again. David escapes the ship wreck of the soul by turning his attention from the debris of his life and puts his gaze on God.


Let’s be honest- “ I feel overcome” is much different than “I am overcome”


“ I feel forsaken “ is much different than “I am forsaken “


Father, help us today to release our grip on the pain of our lives in order to embrace You in your fullness!
