Overcoming Discouragement

Why, my soul, are you downcast? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior and my God. – Psalm 42:5 NIV
As we continue our “Matters of the Heart Series” today we’re looking at how discouragement hurts our hearts and in turn prevents us from moving forward in boldness and confidence. Of course God’s word doesn’t fail us in this area and offers hope, healing, and practical solutions to overcoming this harmful emotion. If you’re feeling down this is just the video for you. Enjoy!

What ways have you found helpful to encourage yourself in the Lord?

Dear Heavenly Father, thank You for lifting me up when I am down. Please help me to keep my eyes on You and to continually encourage myself in You. In Jesus Christ Name I pray. Amen.
