The opposite of despair:

"I will not give up!"
"But he that doth not believe, is already judged: because he believeth not in the name of the only begotten Son of God (Jn 3:18)."

"All sorrow leads to the foot of the Cross.  Weep for your sins."

"Although He should kill me, I will trust in Him"

Those trapped in despair, go to confession and trust in God.  Never give up.

Quote from: JobAlthough He should kill me, I will trust in Him
"But he that doth not believe, is already judged: because he believeth not in the name of the only begotten Son of God (Jn 3:18)."

"All sorrow leads to the foot of the Cross.  Weep for your sins."

"Although He should kill me, I will trust in Him"

When the soul is consumed by the inability to trust God, one must suffer from despair. Jesus said, "do not be afraid," which means we must trust Him.
