If the light goes out of our lives

Sometimes it seems that the light goes out of our lives— and we can even mark the moment it ceased. Perhaps a job we had built our whole experience around ended. Or someone dear passed on. Or maybe the warmth we felt for something or someone has gradually been replaced with feelings of disappointment, disillusionment, or cynicism. Somehow, despite our efforts, the flame has gone out or has dwindled to a mere flicker.

Yet, who doesn't yearn for the feeling of being on the mountaintop, full of joy, hope, and clear purpose? Is it possible to have it? Yes, it is. How? Through discovering God's ideal.
