Psalm 40:2 (NLT)
He lifted me out of the pit of despair, out of the mud and the mire. He set my feet on solid ground and steadied me as I walked along.
We live in a discouraging world “but if we remain locked in discouragement, it becomes a cynicism that leaves our hearts in a perpetual state of gloom. For those of us who are prone to become discouraged, the grave danger is that we would get lost in self-pity, and cynicism, a pit from which it is so difficult to climb.”** Learn to receive encouragement from all its sources: words of kindness from a friend, the witness of the Spirit to our hearts, the beauty of a sunrise, scripture, laughter. Where did you pull encouragement from today?
