What is depression? The poet has described it this way…
Depression is Debilitating, defeating,
Trudging wearily through
The grocery store,
Unable to make a simple choice,
Or to count out correct change.
Surveying an unbelievably messy house,
Piles of laundry,
Work undone, and not being
Able to lift a finger.
Doubting that God cares,
Doubting in my prayers,
Doubting He’s even there.
Sitting, staring wild-eyed into space,
Desperately wanting out of the human race.
Have you ever felt that way? I am so thankful that God’s Holy Word contains example after example of His children that faced this all too common struggle. We find that struggle in our text today. We go to the Heavenly Hymnal, the book of Psalms. In Psalm 42 and 43 we read the words of a despondent soul. The writer finds himself in what appears to be a hopeless and helpless situation. How do you find “The Way Up When You are Down?” You can listen to this message by following this link or visit our sermons page.
