Why Am I Discouraged?
Hope in GOD!

As the deer longs for streams of water,
so
 I long for YouO God.

2 I thirst for God, the living God.
    When can I go and stand before Him?
Day and night I have only tears for food,
    while my enemies continually taunt mesaying,
    “So,where is this God of yours?”

My heart is breaking as I remember

how it used to be:
I walked among the crowds of worshipers,
    leading a great processionto the house of God,
and singing for joy and giving thanks
    amid the sound of a great celebration!

Why am I discouragedWhy is my heart so sad?
I will put my hope in God!
    I will praise Him again my Savior

and my God!

Now I am deeply discouragedbut I will remember you—
even from distant Mount Hermon, the source of the Jordan,
    from the land of Mount Mizar.
I hear the tumult of the raging seas
    as your waves and surging tides sweep over me.
But each day the Lord pours His unfailing
love upon me
and through each night I sing His songs,
    praying to God who gives me life.

O God my Rock,I cry out,
    “Why have You forgotten memy Lord?
Why must I wander around in grief,
    oppressedby my enemies?”
10 Their taunts break my bones.
    They scoff, “Where is this God of yours?”

11 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!

~ Psalm 42 — NLT ~
