Why am I so discouraged? Why is my heart so sad? I will put my hope in God! I will praise him again — my savior and my God!
Psalm 42:5 NLT
Sometimes sadness and depression impact us so, but we don’t know why. But that’s not the issue. The issue is our response to it.
Look at the psalmist’s response to his depression. He doesn’t allow it to incapacitate him or leave him feeling hopeless. In fact, he turns his hopelessness into hope by focusing on God and praising God for who He is.
