During my life I like many others have suffered much disappointment,

                                                                                            injustice

                                                                                           abondonment

       I have found great encouragement as I read the Psalms

            I first discovered this when I was in my late teens when one day I sat in my car depressed

and got out the Guideon's Bible from my glove box and looked up the references for depression.

           since then I have noticed the  writer of the Psalms laments his depression

then turns to God for hope and help  and salvation

  "Why are you cast down, O my soul,

     and why are you disquieted within me?

 Hope in God, for I shall yet praise Him,

    my help and my God"
