The next time you find yourself in this place, try reminding yourself of who you are now, not who you used to be.
Focus on drawing nearer and nearer to Jesus and not on how far apart you feel from Him.
As Paul reminds us, "Think on these things...":
"Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable--if anything is excellent or praiseworthy--think about such things" [Phil. 4:8]
