I'm sure I'm not the only one who deals with discouragement. I have to choose joy daily and not let negative voices or events dictate how I confront tomorrow. Life is tough! Thank God we don't have to do it alone! He's given His word to comfort and direct us when we feel most discouraged! Here are a few verses I read when I feel defeated! Just know you are not alone!
1 Peter 1:6-9
In this you rejoice, though now for a little while, if necessary, you have been grieved by various trials, so that the tested genuineness of your faith—more precious than gold that perishes though it is tested by fire—may be found to result in praise and glory and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ. Though you have not seen him, you love him. Though you do not now see him, you believe in him and rejoice with joy that is inexpressible and filled with glory, obtaining the outcome of your faith, the salvation of your souls.
We are afflicted in every way, but not crushed; perplexed, but not driven to despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed
And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.
For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.
And I will lead the blind in a way that they do not know, in paths that they have not known I will guide them. I will turn the darkness before them into light, the rough places into level ground. These are the things I do, and I do not forsake them.
Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
You got this!
