Imagine if you did not have any hope. That you awoke every morning with the defeat from yesterday on your shoulders. It happens everyday all day to people. Something has to come from within to change that heavily weighted feeling. It is very difficult to do sometime. With a strong spiritual foundation you can do it.
1Peter 5:8 Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.
