The Nature of Discouragement

Understand that discouragement: Is something we can choose; is universal; can recur; is conquerable.

While it’s a natural response to difficult circumstances, we have the power to choose a different response. No one else is responsible for our discouragement.

If we trust in the Lord’s promises and His character, our feelings of discouragement will slowly be replaced by hope.
