When you lose heart you can’t love.
When you lose heart you can’t worship... you can’t serve.
When you lose heart you lose the wellspring of life within you.
It is the greatest loss a human being ever experiences.
"But You, Sovreign Lord,
help me for your name's sake;
out of the goodness of your love,
For I am poor and needy,
and my heart is wounded within me.
I fade away like an evening shadow;
I am shaken off like a locust.
My knees give way from fasting;
my body is thin and gaunt.
I am an object of scorn to my accusers;
when they see me, they shake their heads.
Help me, Lord my God;
save me according to your unfailing love.
Let them know that it is your hand,
that you, Lord, have done it.
