During my life I like many others have suffered much disappointment,
I have found great encouragement as I read the Psalms
I first discovered this when I was in my late teens when one day I sat in my car depressed
and got out the Guideon's Bible from my glove box and looked up the references for depression.
since then I have noticed the writer of the Psalms laments his depression
then turns to God for hope and help and salvation
"Why are you cast down, O my soul,
and why are you disquieted within me?
Hope in God, for I shall yet praise Him,
my help and my God"
Psalm 42 verses 5 and 6a NRSV Zondervan Publishing
