“It Would Have Been a Despair”

Life is a cycle of ups and downs. It’s its nature. A loop of highs and lows that no matter how good or bad you are, and how wise or foolish your decisions may seem, you’ll still experience successes and failures. It’s just like a picture that’s being formed by positive and negative spaces where you need to see both to see the real image. No matter how terrible life may seem, there’s always a positive side of it. So instead of looking on just one side of life, better look on both sides to see its beauty. But perhaps, you’ll think that this would just be helpful for those who are optimist, who tend to always see the bright side of any issues, and it’s how their brain used to function, however, what about for those who are used to be pessimist. What about for those people who are always seeing the dark side? Is it possible for them to turn their sight on the light, where they’re surrounded with darkness? How can they distinguish the difference where they’re born in the absence of brightness? This is surely a great despair. This is just like crying out loud in the midst of an empty space. Well, this would have been a despair, but thank God, He gave us FAITH. Faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen (Heb. 11:1). This is an extraordinary gift from God that can give us light in our darkness. This is the reason we can see things beyond the walls of our eyesight, and be able to breakthrough it. This is what the psalmist David expressed when he said in Psalm 27:13, “I would have despaired unless I had believed…”. Without faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, it would have been a despair.
