Why am I discouraged? Why is my heart so sad? I will put my hope in God! I will praise him again–my Savior and my God!
There are times and seasons in your life where you will feel extremely discouraged. Sometimes you may not be able to pinpoint what is bringing out those feelings. They can be a result of you being disappointed about one thing or the other. It can be a result of you misjudging something or someone. It can also be as a result of God not giving you something or doing something for you that you were expecting from Him.
It could be discouragement you feel from not being able to draw that brother or sister into the presence of God as you wanted to. No matter the situation may be I want to encourage you to take heart.
Be encouraged that the Lord is always there for you. No matter the situation put your hope in Him and know that no disappointment is beyond Him. He is able to rectify all things even the mistakes you may have caused on your own. Put your hope in the Lord when the going gets tough as well as when it is easy. Hold on to Him in all instances of life and believe that He is there for you. When your heart becomes sad do not dwell in that place of sadness rather remind yourself of the greatness of your God. You will feel disappointed one way or another in this life. You will be discouraged at some point. But place your hope in the Lord and He will see you through.
