What keeps one going when they really get down?

I am just really down, sort of hopeless on getting everything turned around. I just want to know what inspires you to get out of bed and take on each day? Michael, 34

On the very worst of days, what gets me out of bed is the knowledge that He got me through the day before... even though it seemed impossible at the time to endure it.

AND, the awareness that I "should" be dead, due to my foolish choices in life, and yet I'm alive, healthier than I ought to be, and able to reach out to others.... is nothing short of a miracle.

Sometimes the hardest thing to do, is to choose to see hope, when you're sitting in the dark.

Shalom, Dena

Other than my alarm clock and two screaming kids who want breakfast (LOL), what gets me out of bed is the Lord.

I believe that even in our day to day struggles, there is much more to life than just existing/living/dying. I believe we are on a journey that eventually leads us to eternal life (if we chose it).

I believe that the Bible is full of scriptures to inspire us to see past our lives' here on earth and grasp that He has prepared a better place for us after we have "fought the good faith and finished the race."

I believe that no matter what it seems like, if we trust God, He has our lives' in His hands- through the good and the bad.

This verse is what gets me out of bed,

" For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord. Plans to prosper you and not harm you. Plans to give you hope and a future."

Jeremiah 29:11

That should read " fought the good FIGHT" not the good "faith" LOL..

It would be pointless to fight against your faith huh? LOL
