Look for Hope God gives if things are Bad!

If you need some hope, look for the good in others, in yourself, and in God. At various times throughout life, there are setbacks and tragedies. These bad things are part of being human. The hope is what keeps us going and helps us to find happiness and joy in the suffering.

Instead of running from pain and suffering, we should embrace it. Why? It allows the soul to mourn and finally to heal properly. The whole process is somewhat complicated and different for everyone. However, there are 4 things that can help.


Prayer can bring hope to those filled with despair. The very act of prayer helps you to go outside of yourself and focus on the positive.  If you are in deep despair, you can at least pray for hope and it will come.  Prayer has a keen way of focusing the mind and helping us to stop focusing on self. Prayer helps us to focus on God and what He can do in and through circumstances!  This act, alone will  help you break out of the ego or pain like state.

Doing Things

If you want more hope, it is important to keep doing things. Even the little things like keeping your car clean or going on a bike ride will infuse a lighter spirit. That’s why it is good to do little things for others that need hope. Having the little things done, in life, makes everything a little easier to do. Turn on and play Christian music to give you new hope! David in the Psalms did this and evil depressing Spirits left Him- And whenever the tormenting spirit  that God allowed tortured Saul, David would play the harp. Then Saul would feel better, and the tormenting spirit would then go away -1 Samuel 16:23. Want a chance to escape whatever is tormenting you, go here; MeetwithGodinAsong
