Hope for the Broke

We pick up the story in Ps. 42-43... David is discouraged: struggling emotionally, sinking in the quicksand of discontentment. He is complaining about what he doesn't have and feels like he needs. He feels distant from God and lacks true perspective of life. Then he begins to preach HOPE to himself... fighting the battle of hopelessness from the inside out, rather than letting the outside overcome him.
