John Keble used to say, "When you are quite despondent, the best way is to go out and do something kind to somebody."
This is a medicine that never fails to cure. To test it, try it.
Your visit to the sick, the bereaved, the disheartened & the lonely, will kindle fires of love & hope upon your own desolate hearth.
Christ was faithful & cheerful & one reason was that He "went about doing good."
Imprison yourself with your sorrow & life will be a gloomy bondage.
Acts 10:38 (LEB): “Jesus of Nazareth - how God anointed him with the Holy Spirit and with power, who went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, because God was with him.”
