Be optimistic, even in the difficult moments of your life, by entrusting every matter to Christ. Jesus is a God of hope. He is the source of hope, and the reason to hope — no matter what the pessimistic evidence looks like.
Pessimism and discouragement are weapons used by devils who want us to give up and forget about Jesus. Optimism, when based on the love and the power and the promises of Christ, is faith made strong by hope.
