When You’re Feeling Discouraged

discouraged-clipart-1

Hey guys!

Today I want to discuss something we have all experienced at some point in our lives and that is feelings of discouragement.

I am currently feeling that way. I have been looking for work and just seem to be hitting brick wall after brick wall. It’s times like this when I should definitely be turning to God for His guidance and have faith that He has a plan for me even though I don’t see it right now.

Easier said than done sometimes, right?

So that being said, I have decided instead of allowing the feelings of discouragement to take over, I need to keep my head held high and not give up. As someone who lives with bipolar disorder, it’s crucial I don’t let myself sink into a depression over this so this morning I am turning to the Bible for guidance and encouragement.

I like what Joshua has to say in particular –

Joshua 1:9

Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”

So true! I should know that but it’s so easy sometimes to get caught up in your own head and forget that God has your back.

Corinthians also has some excellent advice if you’re going through the same thing right now –

1 Corinthians 15:58

Therefore, my beloved brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that in the Lord your labor is not in vain.

I have to believe that if you work for the Lord, He will work for you. 🙂

I feel I am also taking these negative feelings and worries and turning it into a positive by writing about it here. I know I am not alone and that many people can relate and perhaps by writing about it I might be able to touch someone who also needs their spirits lifted. That makes me feel good. It’s therapeutic and takes you out of your head. I love writing. ❤

So yeah, if you’re in the same boat, I feel you and just know you are not alone. If you believe in Him, turn your worries over to God. He’s always ready and willing to help. ❤

 

1 Peter 5:7

Casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you.

Take Care & God Bless ❤

  1. Thank you for your Message Cavelle which is seeking to give assurance we are not alone that our Abba Father Loves us.

    I remember going through a Storm in my Life and feeling very down, God gave me the Scripture below and the Song also touches my Heart profoundly, I hope you are Blessed by them Cavelle.

    Isaiah 43:1-3 – Do not be afraid for I have ransomed you. I have called you by name you are mine. When you go through deep waters and great trouble I will be with you. When you go through rivers of difficulty you will not drown! When you walk through the fire of oppression you will not be burned up the flames will not consume you. For I am the LORD your God The Holy One of Israel, your Saviour.”

    Jeremiah 29 :11-12 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.

    Lamentations 3: 33 For God doth not afflict willingly nor grieve the Children of Men.

    Christian Love Always – Anne.
