Down But Not Out

Leave a comment

Psalm 88:1 NIV and Philippians 4:7 NIV

A recent Daily Bread is entitled “Down But Not Out”, written by Herb Vander Lugt. When I first saw the title, my thoughts were “Hmmmmmm, let’s see what this is all about, and how these Bible verses are related to such a title.”

The reading cites the example of Samuel Johnson, an 18th-century author, and his “zest for living”, up to the day he died.

The section of the reading that spoke to me the most was the ending which relates to Philippians 4:7 – “…especially for those who go through times of doubt and despair.”

Despair may be defined as the loss of hope, hopelessness. I have many a times forgotten the “peace of God” during my “down, but not out” times. Agreeably, there are times when merely quoting Bible verses helps little. However, if we keep living and praying, our faith will prevail.
