    Psalm 42

    As the deer pants for the water brooks,
    So my soul pants for Thee, O God

    My soul thirsts for God, for the living God;
    When shall i come and appear before God?

    My tears have been my food day and night,
    While they say to me all day long, "where is your God?"

    These things i remember, and I pour out my soul within me.
    For i used to go along with the throng and lead them
    in procession to the house of God,
    With the voice of joy and thanksgiving, a multitude
    keeping festival.

    Why are you in despair, O my soul?
    And why have you become disturbed within me?
    Hope in God, for i shall again praise Him
    for the help of His presence.

    O my God, my soul is in despair within me;
    Therefore I remember Thee from the land of the Jordan,
    And the peaks of Hermon, from Mount Mizar.

    Deep calls to deep at the sound of Thy waterfalls;
    All Thy breakers and Thy waves have rolled over me.

    The Lord will command His lovingkindness in the daytime;
    And His song will be with me in the night,
    A prayer to the God of my life.

    I will say to God my rock, "Why hast Thou forgotten me?
    Why do i go mourning because of the oppression
    of the enemy?"
    As a shattering of my bones, my adversaries revile me,
    While they say to me all day long "Where is your God?"

    Why are you in despair, O my soul?
    And why have you become disturbed within me?
    Hope in GOD, for I shall YET praise HIM,
    The help of my countenance, and my God!

    There are several people asking for prayer for depression right now. Hope they find encouragement in these words of God. God's spiritual release for depression is Praise,
    and rememberance of His goodness. What we least feel like doing at times like this. (sometimes physically we made need outside help)

    Don't give up, keep seeking!

    God Bless everyone
