In Episode 5 of my series on “Depression,” we walk through Psalm 13. David believed God and even though he did feel God experientially, he knew God was present covenantally. Listen as we look at some practical ways from Psalm 13 to cultivate joy in the midst of depression.

Psalm 13

How Long, O Lord?
To the choirmaster. A Psalm of David.

1 How long, O Lord? Will you forget me forever?
How long will you hide your face from me?
2 How long must I take counsel in my soul
and have sorrow in my heart all the day?
How long shall my enemy be exalted over me?

3 Consider and answer me, O Lord my God;
light up my eyes, lest I sleep the sleep of death,

4 lest my enemy say, “I have prevailed over him,”
lest my foes rejoice because I am shaken.

5 But I have trusted in your steadfast love;
my heart shall rejoice in your salvation.

6 I will sing to the Lord,
because he has dealt bountifully with me.
