    Psalm 42 , 1-11 Oh LORD I love thee and feel I should just come and be with you to escape all my troubles because when I am glad think of YOU go to the house of GOD the (Church) to be filled with joy and happiness and to experience miracles on those sensitive issues of my life. But verses 5/11 creates an impression that the penitent troubles remains unsolved, then comes the sorrow but 5 says WHY..
