Why Art Thou Cast Down

Psalm 42:11
Psalm 43:3,4

Check this out on Chirbit

Why art thou cast down, O my soul, O my soul?
And why art thou disquieted within me?
Hope thou in God: for I shall yet praise Him,
Who is the health of my countenance and my God,
and my God.
O send out Thy light and Thy truth, and Thy truth.
Then will I go to the altar of God, unto God
my exceeding joy.

Cathy, this is so beautiful and comforting.
This is such a disappointing and sad time, isn't it? I'm having a hard time keeping my focus, but I know that the Lord reigns and that He is coming again.
Lots of love!

Beyond beautiful.

Oh yes, Cathy! Such comforting melody to these psalms and perfect for the devotional that Denise sent us. I tried to sing along and like these better when you do, cuz then I can.

[When I sing, I wonder, oh, did she have an intro, or do we start right away, then I can tell when I'm in the right line with what you play.]

Psalm 42:11
Why, my soul, are you downcast?
Why so disturbed within me?
Put your hope in God,
for I will yet praise him,
my Savior and my God.

O Lord, our Savior and God, we will not be downcast or disturbed within us nor from what goes on around us. We put our HOPE in You! We will praise You as Our God and Our Savior and nothing will keep us downcast as we cast our burdens on You and cast our eyes in Your direction, keeping our focus on Jesus and Your Word.

Psalm 43:3,4
Send me your light and your faithful care,let them lead me;
let them bring me to your holy mountain,to the place where you dwell.
4 Then I will go to the altar of God, to God, my joy and my delight.
I will praise you with the lyre,
O God, my God.

We will delight in You, O God!

and sing this song of Cathy's!

Thank you Cathy! You caught we at the right time. Checking on my permit for here again (still not ready)...

Blessings, prayers and much love,
