If you find yourself depressed and wondering whether God is good, may this little poem be an encouragement to your soul today.
Lord, sometimes I get depressed.
My life seems filled with constant stress.
At times the pain is hard to bear.
It feels as if there’s no one there.
But as I look around and see,
I see that You’ve always been good to me.
As a man in rags goes by,
Oh Lord, I start to realize.
This man outside has nothing to eat,
As he walks outside in his bare feet.
All the while I sit with the blues,
There’s a man outside without any shoes.
And off somewhere in an alley lays,
A man who longs for better days.
Yes, Lord, I’m blind when I don’t see,
How good, oh Lord, You’ve been to me.
