Chapter-a-Day Psalm 42

The_bluesWhy are you down in the dumps, dear soul? Why are you crying the blues? Fix my eyes on God — soon I’ll be praising again. He puts a smile on my face. He’s my God. Psalm 42:5 (TM)

Everyone needs to sing the blues once in a while. It’s part of the human experience. The rain falls on the good and the bad. If you’ve never sung the blues then you can’t appreciate fully the times of joy and praise that follow. The important part of singing the blues is knowing in your heart it is only temporary.

One thought on “Chapter-a-Day Psalm 42”

  1. He puts a smile on my face.
    He’s my God.
    There is a very empty feeling in our spirit at times. It can be brought on by conflict in relationships, struggle in our jobs or many other things. It lifts my spirit this morning to hear the authors repeat this line twice in today’s Psalm. God can put a smile on my face.
