7.) Realize God is greater.
In no way do I want to make light of your troubles or the things that have you feeling down.
God understands and he cares. Jesus even tells us “in this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” (John 16:33 NIV). God is greater than whatever it is that has you feeling down. Believing this truth lightens our burden and grants a peace that goes deeper than our sad feelings. In the end it produces a fruit I like to call joy.
