You Know You're Doing Well If

Anti-depressant drugs are commonplace in America, and still you see people moping around, anxious and forlorn. A friend recently ticked off a measure of how a person is faring according to a very insightful list. You can bet you're doing okay if you can answer "yes" to each of the following:

Are you breathing?

Do you have clean water?

Did you eat today?

Do you have clean clothes?

Do you have a roof overhead?

Do you have a good heart?

Are you striving to be better?

Does someone care for you?

Do you care about others?

Do you have a dream?

It has been said, a normal person can last only 3 minutes without air, 3 days without water, and 30 days without food. But you won't last 3 seconds without hope! For lack of a vision, people perish. (Proverbs 29:18)
