Why are you cast down, O my soul?

"So then, my soul, why would you be depressed?
Why would you sink into despair?
Just keep hoping and waiting on God, your Savior.
For no matter what, I will still sing with praise,
for living before his face is my saving grace!

Here I am depressed and downcast.
Yet I will still remember you as I ponder the place
where your glory streams down from the mighty mountaintops, lofty and majestic—the mountains of your awesome presence.[d]
 My deep need calls out to the deep kindness of your love.
Your waterfall of weeping sent waves of sorrow
over my soul, carrying me away,
cascading over me like a thundering cataract.

 Yet all day long God’s promises of love pour over me.
Through the night I sing his songs,
for my prayer to God has become my life.
I will say to God, “You are my mountain of strength;
how could you forget me?

Why must I suffer this vile oppression of my enemies—
these heartless tormentors who are out to kill me?”
Their wounding words pierce my heart
over and over while they say,
“Where is this God of yours?”
 So I say to my soul,
“Don’t be discouraged. Don’t be disturbed.
For I know my God will break through for me.”
Then I’ll have plenty of reasons to praise him all over again.
Yes, living before his face is my saving grace! (Psalm 42)

You have served me, sought me, and loved me, even though you have not seen me. Even when your environment was not the best, your love flourished. You found me as your faithful God. I will never cease to listen to your voice and answer your cry. My eyes are fixed on you. Continue to seek me, even in your difficult places, even though it seems like darkness is all around you, and I will be the light of life within you.

I have set you in the perfect place to be my witness and to reflect my glory. I will change your circumstances as you allow me to change your heart. Daniel did not suffer in the lions’ den because of his lack of sin, but because of his devotion to me. So many of the difficulties you have faced are not punishment from my hand, beloved. They are because of the favor of my heart that covers you. I will promote you through your pain as you seek me and remain faithful to my plans for you.” (Whispers written by Brian Simmons and Gretchen Rodriguez)

People will try to put you down; Thoughts will make you feel discouraged; The circumstances will try to rob your faith! Sometimes you will ask yourself: What Am I doing wrong?!

When everything seems hopeless and you strentgh is gone, remember that all around the world, your brothers and sisters are suffering the same trials (or even worse) than you. Don’t loose heart! Stick on what is Eternal, hold on to the hope that Jesus is faithful and His love for us never changes!

I love the lyric of this song. I hope it inspire you to hold on your faith! Have a great day =)
