A Deep Yearning III

Why are you cast down, O my soul
and why are you in turmoil within me?
Hope in God; for I shall again praise him
my salvation and my God.

Here is a clear response to depression and turmoil. Put your hope in God.

I like how the Lenguage Actual, a Spanish translation, says it:

There is no reason for me to be unsettled!
There is no reason for me to be worried!
I will put my trust in God my Savour!
I will praise only Him!

If the way is dry and the presence is not there, there is no reason to get upset. Trust in God. Praise Him. He is our hope and our salvation.

As the deer pants for water, so my soul longs for you!

Psalm 42:5, 11, 43:5 ESV
