I wanted to share this with you.. It was something I read through when I was in my darkest moments.. those days when death seemed like the only answer and I just longed for peace. The days when I cried out to God to help me, heal me, and it seemed like He was so far away and would not answer me.

King David wrote this in a time in his life when he too, was suffering from intense pressure, depression, and anxiety. He was questioning God and God's very presence. He was crying out from the depths of his being asking his God.. "where are you?"

" Day and night I only have tears for my food. My enemies surround me and say, " where is this God of yours?" ,
My heart is breaking as I remember how things used to be, I would walk among the crowds, leading them to a great procession to the house of God. There was singing and joy and giving thanks, it was the sound of a great celebration."

" why am I so discouraged? Why am I so sad? I whould put my hope in God. I will praise Him again. He is my Savior and God.

Now I am deeply discouraged BUT I will remember your kindness."

" O God, my rock, I cry, " why have you forsaken me? Why must I wander in DARKNESS?

The taunts me pierce me like a fatal wound."

Psalm 42

You can see that even a man who knew God closely and walked intimately with Him, had moments of such utter despair that the darkness was overwhelming.

I've been there.. when the darkness is so overwhelming you can't even begin to see the light, or any hope for the future. You just hope to sleep until you wake up in peace or never wake up at all.

But I will believe God for better days for you!
