Are you discouraged?

 

By Rosie Moore

 

Full of depression? Depressed? Angry? Wondering what is going on? Well, don’t be. Listen to what God says:

“In the middle of my pain, loving Father, sometimes there are no words I can bring to you-only groans of anguish,  tears of sorrow, and the silence of suffering in which I  can sense  you sitting with me; also silent. But your presence has its own language of communion with my broken spirit. You don’t despise my grief; you share in it with me. Thank you for always being here with me no matter what.”

The lovely paragraph is from my Daily Psalms and Prayers book and I depend on it a lot. It also says, “though the sorrow in our hearts causes us to tremble and weep, the Lord holds us tightly  in his comforting embrace.”

These thoughts are great to hold unto during these trying times. Also last week I saw on Facebook in honor of St. Patricks’ Day, these words:

“May there always be work for your hands to do;

May your purse always hold a coin or two

May the sun always shine on your window pane;

May a rainbow be certain to follow each rain;

May the hand of a friend always be near you;

May God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you”

So, cheer up. Christ said, “this too shall pass away!”
