During an October vacation, another battle with chronic pain forced me to spend the first few days recovering in our room. My mood became as overcast as the sky. When I finally ventured out to enjoy sightseeing at a nearby lighthouse with my husband, gray clouds blocked much of our view. Still, I snapped a few photos of the shadowy mountains and dull horizon.

Later, disappointed because a downpour tucked us in for the night, I skimmed through our digital pictures. Gasping, I handed my husband the camera. “A rainbow!” Focused on the gloominess earlier, I’d missed out on God refreshing my weary spirit with the unexpected glimpse of hope (Genesis 9:13–15).

Physical or emotional suffering can often drag us down into the depths of despair. Desperate for refreshment, we thirst for reminders of God’s constant presence and infinite power (Psalm 42:1–3). As we recall the countless times our Lord has come through for us and for others in the past, we can trust our hope is secured in Him no matter how downcast we feel in the moment (vv. 4–5).

When bad attitudes or difficult circumstances dim our vision, God invites us to call on Him, read His Word, and trust His faithfulness (vv. 7–11). As we seek the Lord, we can rely on Him to help us spot rainbows of hope arched over the darkest days. Hallelujah!

Today's Our Daily Bread devotional Scripture reading is Psalm 42 as the deer pants for streams of water, so my soul pants for you, my God. My soul thirsts for God, for the living God.

When can I go and meet with God. My tears have been my food day and night what people say to me all day long. Where is your God. These things I remember as I pour out my soul how I used to go to the house of God under the protection of the mighty one with shouts of joy and praise among the festive throng why my soul. Are you downcast why I so disturbed within me.

Put your hope in God. For I will yet praise him, my Savior and my God. My soul is downcast within me. Therefore I will remember you from the land of the Jordan, the heights of Herman from Mount Mazar. Deep calls to deep in the roar of your waterfalls all your waves and breakers have swept over me by day the Lord directs his love at night. His song is with me a prayer to the God of my life.

I say to God, my rock, why have you forgotten me. Why must I go about morning oppressed by the enemy.

My bones suffer mortal agony as my.

Me saying to me all day long. Where is your God. Why am I so are you downcast why so disturbed within me. Put your hope in God or I will yet praise him, my Savior and my God that's pray Almighty God, thank you for refreshing our spirits and turning our plea for mercy, and to hope filled praises. In Jesus name we pray. Amen. Today's encouragement was provided by Our Daily Bread ministry
