1 As the hart panteth after the water brooks, so panteth my soul after thee, O God. 2 My soul thirsteth for God, for the living God: when shall I come and appear before God? 3 My tears have been my meat day and night, while they continually say unto me, Where is thy God? 4 When I remember these things, I pour out my soul in me: for I had gone with the multitude, I went with them to the house of God, with the voice of joy and praise, with a multitude that kept holyday. 5 Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted in me? hope thou in God: for I shall yet praise him for the help of his countenance. 6 O my God, my soul is cast down within me: therefore will I remember thee from the land of Jordan, and of the Hermonites, from the hill Mizar. 7 Deep calleth unto deep at the noise of thy waterspouts: all thy waves and thy billows are gone over me. 8 Yet the LORD will command his lovingkindness in the day time, and in the night his song shall be with me, and my prayer unto the God of my life. 9 I will say unto God my rock, Why hast thou forgotten me? why go I mourning because of the oppression of the enemy? 10 As with a sword in my bones, mine enemies reproach me; while they say daily unto me, Where is thy God? 11 Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted within me? hope thou in God: for I shall yet praise him, who is the health of my countenance, and my God.

1 Sarah R = "Psalm 42 (The Voice paraphrase)1 My soul is dry and thirsts for You, True God,    as a deer thirsts for water.2 I long for the True God who lives.    When can I stand before Him and feel His comfort?3 Right now I’m overwhelmed by my sorrow and pain;    I can’t stop feasting on my tears.People crowd around me and say,    “Where is your True God whom you claim will save?”4 With a broken heart,    I remember times beforeWhen I was with Your people. Those were better days.    I used to lead them happily into the True God’s house,Singing with joy, shouting thanksgivings with abandon,    joining the congregation in the celebration.5 Why am I so overwrought?    Why am I so disturbed?Why can’t I just hope in God?    Despite all my emotions, I will believe and praise the One    who saves me and is my life.6 My God, my soul is so traumatized;    the only help is remembering You wherever I may be;From the land of the Jordan to Hermon’s high place    to Mount Mizar.7 In the roar of Your waterfalls,    ancient depths surge, calling out to the deep.All Your waves break over me;    am I drowning?8 Yet in the light of day, the Eternal shows me His love.    When night settles in and all is dark, He keeps me company—    His soothing song, a prayerful melody to the True God of my life.9 Even still, I will say to the True God, my rock and strength:    “Why have You forgotten me?Why must I live my life so depressed, crying endlessly    while my enemies have the upper hand?”10 My enemies taunt me.    They shatter my soul the way a sword shatters a man’s bones.They keep taunting all the day long,    “Where is He, your True God?”11 Why am I so overwrought,    Why am I so disturbed?Why can’t I just hope in God?    Despite all my emotions, I will believe and praise the One    who saves me, my God."
2 Sarah R = "When we are in times of troubles and we feel really down, it helps to remember the things God has done for us in the past. Remembering His goodness and faithfulness to us helps to restore our hope in Him and our faith that He will take care of us just as He did before. Though we may not understand our troubles, we can trust that God sees a bigger picture and will work out all things for good (Romans 8:28)."
3 Sarah R = "Scripture Link: Philippians 4:12 "12 I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. 13 I can do all this through him who gives me strength.""
