Good morning.


We all have times when we feel down. Whenever we do, we can take our pain to the Lord. We can rely on Him. He is the source of comfort and encouragement.


To overcome discouragement, fixing our focus on the Lord is key. His Word promises that He walks with us through the valley. Even when we feel disheartened, we are never alone.


To receive His comfort and encouragement:-

• Look within: Before we can deal with despair, we need to know what is causing it. Ask the Lord to help you figure out what’s going on.

• Look up: Discouragement comes to everybody at one time or another. In theses times we should lift our eyes to the Lord and place our hope in Him.

• Look back. Despair has a way of making us forget all the good things God has done over the years. Recalling His past care and provision helps to overcome  discouragement.

• Look ahead. Knowing that the Lord’s plans are good, we can look forward to what He is going to do in the future. His lovingkindness will support us by day and bring comfort by night.


"Why, my soul, are you downcast? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior and my God."  (Psalms 42:5)


Blessings.
