Why so downcast?

Sitting here this morning with my cup of coffee....My mind is swirling with all the burdens on my heart; tragedies in my town, brokenness in my friend's hearts...pain and loss in this world.

Sometimes it's hard to feel encouraged.  Sometimes I want to hide in the house away from the sadness in the world. 
The psalmist in Psalms 43 says: Why so downcast oh my soul, put your hope in God.  Being downcast means we are human...putting our hope in God is a game-changer. When I remember HIS heart of love, although i dont understand all the pain in this life, I can trust Him. 

Yes, we can be encouraged today...we can have hope because of Christ.  He loves us and is waiting for us to cry out to Him.
