Isaiah 35:5-7

"Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened, and the ears of the deaf shall be unstopped.
Then shall the lame man leap as an hart, and the tongue of the dumb sing: for in the wilderness shall waters break out, and streams in the desert.
And the parched ground shall become a pool, and the thirsty land springs of water: in the habitation of dragons, where each lay, shall be grass with reeds and rushes."
Isaiah 35:5-7

I love God's message, throughout the scriptures and all of the gospel, that things will be okay in the end.  That there IS a happy ending for all of us, as we strive for it.  So many things go wrong in life... things happen that we can't always control.  We get ourselves into situations and make mistakes that we can't undo or rewind.  But God tells us in these verses, and in many others, that none of it is permanent.  Someday the blind will see, the lame will leap, the deserts will have water, and places where scavengers hang out will be lush and green.  All our physical maladies will disappear... and if we work on improving ourselves, our spiritual health can be ensured as well. :)  As we repent and change, God can wipe away even the internal mental, emotional, and spiritual scars.
No matter how things are now, we can become whole, and good, and be redeemed.  Let's look to God, the author of our salvation... the guarantor of the happy ending, and allow him to assist us, and do as he asks.  The happy ending is always worth it. :)
