There is a well-established link between the holidays and depression.
You and I can have hope cuz of Jesus and the promises of God. Not that a believer's life is always peachy keen as the Brits say. It’s not always been victorious or challenge-free for the believers I know. Nope, not even for me, but it’s a lot better.
Had lots of struggles too (please never forget David's and even Paul's confessions of despair in the Bible).... but there is a living hope there for us, a real human who went to the cross due to His love for you.. and then came out of the grave for us.
“For we do not want you to be unaware, brothers, of the affliction we experienced in Asia. For we were so utterly burdened beyond our strength that we despaired of life itself. Indeed, we felt that we had received the sentence of death. But that was to make us rely not on ourselves but on God who raises the dead.“ ~ Paul via 2 Cor. 1:8

Pretty plain and simple – right to the point huh. No matter how you feel, no matter where you are, no matter your circumstances -- follow Christ. He loves you and has a good plan. To take up your cross is to put selfishness aside, and put God’s will above your own. Yeah, it is to die if ya will.. to selfish-ambitions, and to your own independent plans, and to your choices. You know the Lord's are better. To take up your cross so to speak.. is to love God more than anyone or anything else and seek to please Him. @Kurtwvs
