I felt like this piece from Clare Coffey about hope in the face of despair was very good, and I think you will, too:
It is very possible that anxiety distorts perception of the world. It is also possible that the world is simply that bad, and the anxious are simply attuned to the facts.
The good news is that it doesn’t matter. God deals out vengeance; God provides the harvest. God asks nothing from us either in the past or the future, only now.
