Down in the Dumps?

11 Why, my soul, are you downcast?
    Why so disturbed within me?
Put your hope in God,
    for I will yet praise him,
    my Savior and my God. Psalm 42:11

These verses are a repetition of verse 5. So, let me ask you this, is your soul downcast? Have you been “down in the dumps” over things you can and can’t control in your life? Do you cry out to God, “Why, O Lord, why is this happening to me?”

Of course you’re not alone though it often appears that way.

The Spirit of God wants to refresh your soul. He wants to restore and renew the spirit within you. Take a few moments now o just bow your head and call out to Him.

Whether you’re reading this at 5am or at 11pm, He wants you to cry out to Him. He wants that communication. He wants your thoughts and your gripes and your woes to go along with your praises and stories of victory. Make it a habit; do it often. The renewal you’ll experience will wash over you like a flood.
