Stress, Depression, and Hope (1 Peter 1)

It seems there’s just more stress and even depression all around, mild or strong, than there was 4 or 5 months ago. It’s not surprising. And if we’re feeling it, or “sorta feeling it”, it’s good to acknowledge it.

But to people “going through stuff” St Peter speaks directly:

“So be truly glad.
There is wonderful joy ahead,
even though you must endure many trials
for a little while.”

Maybe easier said than done 🙁
But it is a realistic perspective 🙂
