things are bad, but

Psalm 42:5 (JDV)

Why, my throat, are you melting away?¹ Why are you in such uproar? Put your hope in God, because I will still praise him, my Savior and my God.

things are bad, but

Things are bad. Is that reason to give up? Of course not. Nothing can be so bad that it cannot get better. He is our Savior and our God, so there is every reason to put our hope in him, trusting that his blessings will come, and we will still praise him.

Lord, we acknowledge that things are bad, but you are good. We will praise you now for who you are, and we will still be praising you when things get better.
