Author and women’s ministry leader Marie Wikle just published an article called Discouragement, Why Bother on her Spreading Joy website. She asked me to read and comment on the article, and here’s what I posted:
How do you face discouragement?
I face it with Jesus. I know He is beside me and I know at times He faced it too. Then I ask myself what He would do, and I’m certain Jesus would pray and spend time with His Father. So in essence, I face discouragement with HOPE. It’s my faith and my belief in a higher Kingdom and purpose. It’s my TRUST in His will and purpose. If I dare to face discouragement from a world view, then I am lost and drowning in self.
The Lord is my strength, my Rock, my Hope and my Encouragement. He lives.
