If you find yourself falling into the spiritual traps of worry and discouragement, consider the words of Jesus. It was Christ who promised, "In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world" (John 16:33 NKJV). This world is, indeed a place of trials and tribulations, but as believers, we are secure. God has promised us peace, joy, and eternal life. And of course, God always keeps His promises.
Never be afraid to hope - or to ask - for a miracle.
