If your circumstances are leading you to depression and hopelessness– as they often do– then your biggest problem isn’t circumstantial, it’s spiritual.
The circumstances might improve, but eventually they’ll get worse again. If your spiritual problem gets better, then you’ll be less dominated by your circumstances.
Sometimes, though, the spiritual state improves and then the circumstances improve. That’s the best case scenario. In those seasons, thank God for his kindness, and pray that the next time circumstances take a dip (as they surely will), your spiritual life will weather the storm.
