A psalm of encouragement for those days when discouragement seems so close.
Why so downcast, oh my soul?
By day or night, your love is with me.
You are the rising sun come to dispel any shadows leftover from the night.
You are the faithful moon, always working, though darkness tries to hide your face.
I will put my hope in your constant presence, through every season and time.
For the God who rescues me, delights in me.
He works continually for my deliverance and blessing.
Do not be discouraged, oh tender heart of mine.
God is knitting all things together into the tapestry of your life–
Even this, if you will open your hands and let go of it.
