To the Weary
Psalm 119:28 – "My soul is weary with sorrow; strengthen me according to your word."
Psalms has many references that are the very definition of depression. Are you weary of being sad, overwhelmed and tired? I too, experience these feelings. But there is a promise in the latter half of this verse. God’s Word promises to give us strength and even refreshment. “I will refresh the weary and satisfy the faint.” Jeremiah 31:25
Psalm 72:12 says “He will deliver the needy who cry out, the afflicted who have no one to help.” I don’t know about you but I breathe a sigh of relief just thinking about these verses. What is the key? Cry out to the Lord! Make the groaning’s of your heart known to Him in prayer. Yes, He knows how we feel and knows what we need but He wants to hear from us. He desires our turning to Him in need. It is so easy to drown in depression but for us, how tragic that would be because we have a Source of strength to draw from. From Him are springs of living water, so drink up! Allow Him to fill you with all He has to offer!
