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 –
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 –
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. ❤
Casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you.
Take Care & God Bless ❤
