Joy

Psa 43:5

Why are you downcast, O my soul? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior and my God.

 

There are so many “reasons” in today for people to be depressed: the economy, job insecurity, housing market, super bugs.  The list can go on and on.  So many look to their circumstances as their source of joy.  Our joy comes from God and our relationship with Him.  It’s amazing what praising Him does to lift our spirits.  There is no way to praise God and not feel full of His love and joy.  If you find yourself becoming depressed, take some time to praise God, through prayer, through singing, through whatever means you most enjoy.
