Hope for the Despairing Soul

Grace and peace be unto you.

Word of Encouragement…

Why are you cast down, O my soul,
and why are you in turmoil within me?
Hope in God; for He will never leave nor
forsake you.
He will be with you until the
end of the world.

He will deliver you from the snare of the fowler
and from the deadly pestilence.
He will cover you with his pinions,
and under his wings you will find refuge;
his faithfulness is a shield and buckler.

You will not fear the terror of the night,
nor the arrow that flies by day,
nor the pestilence that stalks in darkness,
nor the destruction that wastes at noonday.
And no harm will overtake you.

Encourage yourself in the Lord, O my soul.
O Lord, open my lips and my mouth will
declare your praise,
Enlighten my heart, and I will tell of your
excellent greatness,
And praise you for your mighty acts.

Bless the Lord, O my soul, and all that is within
me, bless his holy name!
Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his
benefits,
who forgives all your iniquity, who heals all your
diseases.

Bless the Lord, all his works, in all places of his
dominion. Bless the Lord, O my soul!

Psalm 42, 91, 51, 150, 103

Song

There was Jesus

Every time I tried to make it on my own
Every time I tried to stand and start to fall
And all those lonely roads that I have travelled on
There was Jesus

When the life I built came crashing to the ground
When the friends I had were nowhere to be found
I couldn’t see it then but I can see it now
There was Jesus

In the waiting, in the searching
In the healing and the hurting
Like a blessing buried in the broken pieces
Every minute, every moment
Where I’ve been and where I’m going
Even when I didn’t know it or couldn’t see it
There was Jesus

For this man who needs amazing kind of grace (Mmm)
For forgiveness at a price I couldn’t pay (Mmm)
I’m not perfect so I thank God every day
There was Jesus (There was Jesus)
