Listen to the Message 

Psalm 42 & 43
“Repaint and thin no more!”
Discouragement is very real.
God desires for you to be joyful! 
Joy is something God can restore in your life! 
You can have hope without having everything figured out.
A heaviness, a level of discouragement that consumes him.    
Because that's where his soul was refreshed and encouraged!
"The more you miss church…the less you miss church."
Why is this situation getting the best of me?
He's choosing to change his focus.
That God's love for him is unfailing.
Towards hope!
He's longing to be in God's presence.
1. Freely Express Yourself To God
  • Everyone walks through trying times and circumstances.
  • God isn't afraid of your pain or doubt.
2. Incline Your Ear to His Voice
  • Your deep suffering has a deep answer.
3. Give Yourself A Good Talking To
  • YOU
  • We allow our self to talk to us instead of talking to our self.
  • He stops listening to himself and starts preaching to himself.
  • Get your eyes off of your circumstances and put your hope in God.
4. Hang Around The Right People
  • Sometimes we need someone else.
5. Transfuse The Atmosphere With Praise
  • Heaviness is a spirit that tries to take the place of God's Spirit.
  • Praise.
  • "Put on the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness."
  • "Make a joyful noise!"
  • "Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice!"
