    I think it makes you realize what your real help comes from...and for you to stop feeling sorry for yourself and trust God with your life and not man.

    This shows depression is a real emotion and it does get bad,but JESUS wants us to cling to him a little more. Trust even more ,hope in him a little more. Keep pushing while we praise YAHWEH foever more.

    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..
  • Christiana Ladipo
    God is forever present even though when we are in doubt at our darkest hour, he will surely wipe away our tears and rekindled our hearts through his grace
