Woe is me…
Were you a Hee-Haw fan?
Maybe you still are.
If so, you likely recall a regular segment.
Several of the cast regulars were sprawled out on the floor. Sometimes, guest stars joined in the singing lament.
“Gloom, Despair & Agony On Me (If it weren’t for bad luck I’d have no luck at all)!”
What a pity party.
The group needed a good dose of old time religion.
“Consider it a great joy, my brothers, whenever you experience various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance (James 1:2-3 HCSB).”
It’s easy for me to fall into the devil’s trap of despair, despondency and depression.
That’s when I need to turn to God.
“The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears,
and delivers them from all their troubles.
The Lord is near the brokenhearted;
He saves those crushed in spirit.
Many adversities come to the one who is righteous,
but the Lord delivers him from them all (Psalm 34:17-19 HCSB).”
