The Inside Out movie actually gave us a really good picture of what can happen to us when we deny the reality of sadness. Oh, that it was just a simple switch we could flip and the gloom would go away. We are broken people in a broken world, and everywhere we turn the news is bad and our lives are hurting. The Psalmist in Psalm 42 cries out from despair and depression, wondering why his soul is downcast. He realizes he should hope in God, which is a good thing. But, this hope in God is not a switch he can flip to turn off his feelings, rather it is a rock. He can't turn his depression on and off, but he does have a place of anchor when the waves are crashing in.
