There is always Hope
I recently read on another blog about this person's view of hope and depression. He mentioned something like, "just keep lying to yourself that it will get better" it "may not get better, but just keep telling yourself that lie". And while I feel so much of what this person was saying to be true that you do never know when you may feel better when you feel so hopeless, I want to offer a slightly different view- one I know is complete and true. That is that there is always hope- always. Not just when you feel well or when things go your way, but and especially when you don't feel your best and when things don't go your way. And the reason I capitalized Hope in the title is because I know there is One source of Hope and ray of light that can change our perspective and help us feel gratitude even when things aren't going the way we desire- and that Hope is only in our Savior Jesus Christ. He is literally the "life and light of the world" and especially when times get rough or dark when we look up to Him I testify we can and most surely will see the light. Paul said, "For god, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of god in the face of Jesus Christ." (2 Corinthians 4:6) He is our only pure source of hope, I know that because I have been blessed to feel that deeply again and again- and it has made my life full of hope and happiness.
