self-care and renewing hope

Hey! Sorry to hear about your sadness. I pray your mood changes and you find your peace soon enough. Here are a few sermon/sermon series that have always helped to encourage me and revive my hope:

Pr. Steven Furtick - The Expectation Gap
Description: We all live in a gap. The gap between what we expect and what we experience. It’s where our dreams die and passions fade. It’s often the birthplace of our frustration, disappointment, and discouragement. But there’s a solution. There is a way to reconcile this space between. In this series we learn about the Expectation Gap – and the God who is able to bridge it all.
Pr. Steven Furtick - Consider the Source
Description: Throughout the Bible, God shows us He is a provider. He tells us not to worry because He knows all our needs. Still, most of us find it hard to trust God when it comes to our job performance, bank account, or relationship status. Why do we struggle entrusting God with our future? How do we learn to live with open hands in a world that tells us to hold on to what we have? 
Pr. Jeremy Foster - Faith, Love, and Hope ---> Part 1   Part 2   Part 3
Description: It’s human nature to build your hope on things that don’t last and pour your heart into something that can’t fulfill you. Sometimes we give everything to a career or relationship and they fail us. We are left empty and confused. 1 Corinthians 13:13 tells us that Faith, Hope and Love are gifts that won’t break or go away. This season find your Faith, Hope and Love for a lifetime.
Pr Michael B. Kelly II - Growing Your Faith
Description:Your faith in God matters to God. In fact, God is most honored through your living, active, death-defying, out-of-the-box faith. That being the case, He’s committed to growing it. Big! Imagine how differently you would respond to difficulties, temptations, and even good things if you knew with certainty that God was in all of it and was planning to leverage it for good. In this series we will look at how God wants to grow our faith.

Even though things may seem rough now, try to stay positive. In the end, it will be worth it because God says so (remember the words of Jeremiah 29:11 and Romans 8:28). So SMILE! Love yourself a little bit more. Be kinder to yourself. Try to do more things that make you happy. Try sprinkling a bit more optimism in your day (p.s. making time to express gratitude daily greatly helps with building that).

As Marcus Aurelius once said,  "The happiness of your life, depends on the quality of your thoughts, therefore guard accordingly; and take care that you entertain no notions unsuitable to virtue, and reasonable nature."

Many blessings to you. I’ll definitely keep you in my prayers.
