    For with God nothing will be impossible (Luke

    1:37). There yet is hope for you in Christ. Whatever your problem may be, and however seemingly grave the situation miay be, it is nothing to the Age of Ages. There yet is hope for you in Christ. All other things are void of actual help. Some may help in soothing the problem...

    I went through months of depression from a

    Every time I attempt to be optimistic it fails

    and I get mad at myself for even having hope. It's so much better to be pessimistic, the let down is much easier to handle.

    Or the one you dance with! I just want to be the girl you think about 20 years from now, while you're staring at your morning coffee, wishing that you hadn't poured so much milk in because now its too creamy to resemble my dark brown eyes.

    If you don't pray about it

    as much as you complain about it you shouldn't be complaining about it. Sometimes we say we want things to change, but we never go to the one who can bring change. Many times He is just sitting up their waiting to see how bad you want it. When you want something bad enough, you...

    Anytime I start thinking about something I go

    straight to assuming the worst. I don't mean to though it kinda just happens. If I think about something and I feel like Something could go wrong then in my mind I go through everything that could go wrong and even start feeling like it will.

    I remember last year my dad was put in the

    hospital. The doctor's didn't know if he was going to make it, and I don't think I would've been able to make it if he died. He's safe now, but since I left for college, each time I call him, and be doesn't answer, I have a fear that something happened.

    I guess you can call me a pessimist.

    Not necessarily a bad thing. I do it so I don't lose motivation. When things go my way, I'm thrilled beyond thrilled. But when they fail, I not get that disappointed and depending on what it is, I'll do it again. Sometimes I look forward to things, only to be let down.

    a lot of anger against a person once I think they're lying to me about something. Most of the time I'm wrong because I make these ridiculous assumptions.

    When I don't hear back from someone,

    I start to panic. I assume the worst. My heart rate increases, and bad thoughts start going through my head. It's a relief to finally hear from them.

    Excuse me for being a pessimist but really, where have the good people gone? It's seems to me that in this day and age people are treated as though they are disposable.

    I don't know what it is,

    but I'm just a panicky person sometimes. When good things happen to me, I always think something bad is going to happen later to counter the good thing. I think what makes it really bad is that I have been right before. That just encourages my worried nature.
