Proverbs 29:18 teaches us that where there is no vision, the people perish. 

You may have had a miserable past, you may even be in current circumstances that are very negative and depressing. You may be facing situations that are too bad it seems you have no real reason to hope. But I say to you bodly, your future is not determined by your past or your present. 

Get a new mind set, believe that with God all things are possible (Luke 18:27); with man some things may be impossible, but we serve a God who created everything we see out of nothing (Hebrews 11:3). Give Him your nothingness and watch Him go to work. All He needs is your faith in Him. He needs for you to believe, and He will do the rest.
