Open my eyes that I may see wonderful things in Your law. Psalm 119:18
Disillusionment and dejection are common among people who have developed a negative outlook on life.
In order to live and not just merely exist, it is essential to nurture a positive attitude -- even when things are not going well. Your faith will need to be strong if you are to triumph over your problems with joy.
Scripture is filled with stories of how ordinary people, life you and me, overcame hostile forces in the name of the Lord. Draw comfort from the Word and through Jesus Christ, the incarnate Word. Then you will be able to triumph over any adversity.
