We all get discouraged from time to time. Sometimes, it’s heavy to carry. It’s easy to go from a little discouraged right into the pit of depression. That’s why it’s so important to go to God when you feel even a little discouraged. As I heard a preacher recently say “pray and tell God you feel discouraged and then let Him decide who he’s going to work through to bring encouragement to you.” This is when praise and worship is important. And a remembrance of the things God has done for you in the past. Ask yourself, what is really bothering me? Get to the bottom of it and then take it straight to God and leave it in His capable hands. Sometimes, we have to make an effort to change our thinking from negative, self pity to positive, uplifting thoughts. Self pity and feeling low all the time kind of go hand and hand. Trust me, I know. God has been working with me on replacing my self pitying thoughts with uplifting thoughts to change my perspective. All things are possible with God. He’s been showing me how to put my focus on other people and get the focus off of myself. This really helps! I highly recommend doing something to help someone else out and just see if your mood doesn’t lift. See if you quit focusing on how you feel and realize you feel joy!
