v5: “This is what the Lord says, ‘You have abandoned me; therefore, I now abandon you to Shishak.’”
1 I criedout to God for help; I criedout to God to hear me.2 When I was in distress, I sought the Lord; at night I stretchedout untiringhands, and I would not be comforted.
3 I remembered you, God, and I groaned; I meditated, and my spirit grew faint.4 You kept my eyes from closing; I was too troubled to speak.
7 “Will the Lord reject forever? Will he never show his favor again?8 Has his unfailing love vanished forever? Has his promise failed for all time?9 Has God forgotten to be merciful? Has he in anger withheld his compassion?”
“Depression is the inability to construct a future.”

10 Then I thought, “To this I will appeal: the years when the Most High stretched out his right hand.11 I will remember the deeds of the Lord; yes, I will remember your miracles of long ago.
19 Your path led through the sea, your way through the mighty waters,though your footprints were not seen.
22 The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end;23 they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.
