'If you are hopeless, there may be many contributors, but two are certain. First you have placed your hope in something other than God - a person, money, personal reputation - and it has let you down. Second, you may understand that Jesus conquered death, but you live as though he is still in the grave. All hopelesness is ultimately a denial of the resurrection.'
Edward T. Welch, Depression: A Stubborn Darkness, p.253.
