We all have been through hard times in our life whether it be financial, physical or even emotional. In these times it is hard to embrace having faith and hope in things yet to come. It is easy to think a door is closing, but in reality it usually means another door is opening that is going to restore joy and peace to our lives. Faith is something that is unseen.
So it is hard to imagine that all will work out when things are tough. It is important to remember that even though the hard times God does not want us to give up. The things we go through are to build our character and make us stronger in the face of adversity.
Things I do when I feel hopeless in a situation is first pray. Prayer is powerful. Praying manifests good things to come. Focus on the positive blessings around you because even in hard times most of us are extremely blessed with family, and love around us. Another thing to do when you are depressed is to get back to hobbies that bring you joy. I know for me its singing.
I love to make videos and to share with my friends. It also lightens the heart and the mood I am in. Hard times are inevitable, but they don’t have to be emotionally crippling to our lives. Remember everyone is going through something. If you happen to be going through a very good season in life use that time to encourage others because when you are going through a hard time later, God will send people to lighten your load.
