“How long will you forget me, O Lord? for ever?”

O Lord my God, I feel so alone….

Psalm 13:1-5

How long will you hide your face from me?

How long shall I take counsel with my soul, feeling sorrow in my heart daily? 

How long shall my enemy be exalted over me?

Consider and hear me, O Lord my God: open my eyes, lest I sleep the sleep of death; Lest my enemy say, “I have prevailed against him….”

But, I trust in God’s mercy; I rejoice in His salvation. I sing unto God because He has dealt bountifully with me.  (modern English and some of my words)

Lesson: Reach out to God   

Power: Gratitude releases despondency.

Strengths: Hoping in God, Trusting God’s mercy, Rejoicing in spite of trouble

Shadow: Blaming God, Doubt, Fear, Feeling alone, Feeling despondent

Over the holidays, I felt so alone. I was despondent. Actually, depression became an enemy. I pushed away my family.

One day, I prayed, “What’s wrong with me.” The answer came, “Connect with the family.”

The following morning, I spent time talking with one of my daughters, spent time with my grandchildren and even cooked breakfast for everyone. The loneliness lifted. The despondent feelings vanished. I didn’t feel depressed. I actually felt loved. 

I connected with others. 

Peace Fills,

Dale
