Depression, despondency, and despair have no place in my life, for I put my hope in the Lord and Him do I praise all day long. My hope is firmly placed in the creator of the universe, in the ruler of it all, in the God of my Saviour, Jesus Christ. For God is my stronghold in times of trouble, He delivers me from the wicked and keeps me safe from those who would do me, my family and my friends harm. His precious and great Word guides me into truth and steers me away from trouble. I will praise Him all the days of my life and worship Him always.
This is what I believe and confidently declare!

Psalms 37:39-40 (ESV) The salvation of the righteous is from the Lord; he is their stronghold in the time of trouble. 40 The Lord helps them and delivers them; he delivers them from the wicked and saves them, because they take refuge in him.
