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.
