Normal folks don’t like diseases, especially incurable ones! The following quote is full of wisdom: “The greatest enemy of man is not disease—it’s despair.” If a person is in despair, he or she is under the most appalling condition.
I like the Book of Ecclesiastes. As I spent time pondering the life truths that the author talked about, I have become a wiser individual. Ecclesiastes 6:1-12 depicts a portrait of despair. Please take a look at verse 12.
12For who knows what is good for a person in life, during the few and meaningless days they pass through like a shadow? Who can tell them what will happen under the sun after they are gone? (Ecclesiastes 6:12 NIV)
Let’s pose a question to God. “Lord, whenever I am in despair, how can I have a new perspective on life?”
Let’s practice what you leant. If you are in despair now, pose the questions that you cannot answer to God, and ask Him to instill hope in you.
Let’s proclaim to others about your experiential knowledge. Share with your friend how you overcame despair.
