Life can be pretty rough at times. It can make you sad, depressed, and hurt you. There are times when problems just keep happening, one after another. When we feel down, we need something to cheer us up. Who better to cheer you up than God?

God loves you and the Bible is full of many wonderful verses and promises that are sure to brighten your day and cheer you up! It is hard for us to find an inspiration when we are feeling down. It is bad when we look to something negative like drugs or alcohol when we are dealing with rough times.
