What are you holding onto in these sometimes dark days? Whatever it is you must not grow weary and give up, because the storm won't last forever.
Thus, we must continue to look towards The One who will direct our lives to His goodness and mercy. As we, "trust in the Lord with all our heart, and do not lean on our own understanding. In all our ways acknowledge Him, and He will make our paths smooth and straight" ~Proverbs 3:5-6
Look up towards heaven then you will see God. Then you will be encouraged -- encouraged in the Lord. That will work, it worked for me. If it didn't work I wouldn't say you should do it.
