  1. Psalm 77 (Encouragement)

    Psalm 77
    1I cried unto God with my voice, even unto God with my voice; and he gave ear unto me.
    2In the day of my trouble I sought the Lord: my sore ran in the night, and ceased not: my soul refused to be comforted.
    3I remembered God, and was troubled: I complained, and my spirit was overwhelmed. Selah.
    4Thou holdest mine eyes waking: I am so troubled that I cannot speak.
    5I have considered the days of old, the years of ancient times.
    6I call to remembrance my song in the night: I commune with mine own heart: and my spirit made diligent search.
    7Will the Lord cast off for ever? and will he be favourable no more?
    8Is his mercy clean gone for ever? doth his promise fail for evermore?
    9Hath God forgotten to be gracious? hath he in anger shut up his tender mercies? Selah.
    10And I said, This is my infirmity: but I will remember the years of the right hand of the most High.
    11I will remember the works of the LORD: surely I will remember thy wonders of old.
    12I will meditate also of all thy work, and talk of thy doings.
    13Thy way, O God, is in the sanctuary: who is so great a God as our God?
    14Thou art the God that doest wonders: thou hast declared thy strength among the people.
    15Thou hast with thine arm redeemed thy people, the sons of Jacob and Joseph. Selah.
    16The waters saw thee, O God, the waters saw thee; they were afraid: the depths also were troubled.
    17The clouds poured out water: the skies sent out a sound: thine arrows also went abroad.
    18The voice of thy thunder was in the heaven: the lightnings lightened the world: the earth trembled and shook.
    19Thy way is in the sea, and thy path in the great waters, and thy footsteps are not known.
    20Thou leddest thy people like a flock by the hand of Moses and Aaron.

    I have this feeling of mild depression but this Psalm seemed to help . What i find uplifting about this song is that God doesn't mind if we complain . God will listen . God doesn't mind if we voice laments . Verses 7-9 seem to be a song David was singing during the night and generally seems like he's turning on God .. but then God's love lighted his mind and he was reminded of what God had done . and this is such an important lesson . When i cannot see what God is doing now because my mind and heart are clouded . what i do have is my remembrance of what God has already done in my life and the lives of other saints .

    be encouraged today . and cast your cares on Him because He cares for you (1st Peter 5:7) . There may be clouds in your heart . but Jesus is our holy sunrise .

    Malachi 4:2
    But for you who revere my name, the sun of righteousness will rise with healing in its wings. And you will go out and leap like calves released from the stall.

    2 Peter 1:19
    And we have the word of the prophets made more certain, and you will do well to pay attention to it, as to a light shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts.
