No power in society, no hardship in your condition can depress you, keep you down, in knowledge, power, virtue, influence, but by your own consent.
Don’t ever consent to being down. Look on the bright side of things and remember that God has a plan for you. When you feel things closing in around you, keep a positive attitude and seek out God’s support through meditation and prayer.
Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord. Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.
