Have you ever experienced discouragement? I am sure that all of us would say, “Most assuredly yes—many times.” The days in which we live have certainly intensified the opportunity to become discouraged.
Discouragement will steal your joy, peace, and contentment. It will cause you to begin to fall into despair, self-pity, and depression. Sometimes discouragement can be so strong that you don’t even want to go on living.
