Best regards. Hoping you are well, dear reader. This long road of life is sometimes difficult. Sometimes it seems impossible. And it seems more impossible when we are still discouraged, depressed, disappointed.
As humans it is normal that we get discourage. What should not be normal is that it dominates us and leads us into a depression. One of the main reasons to be dominated by discourage or depression is because the foundation of your life is wrong. Many people based their happiness in things or people. Through the news we learned that there have been millionaires artists who use drugs, or have committed suicide. This example serves to confirm that money must not be our hope for happiness and peace in our lives.
Only depending on God and surrendering our lives to Him, we can overcome those moments of discouragement and lack of peace that come to us. John 16:33 “I have told you these things so that in Me you may have peace. In the world you have tribulation. But take heart! I have overcome the world”. Jesus overcame death. Much more, He can overcome discouragement. The Bible contains the Word of God. Reading and studying His Word, we learn how God fills our empty inside and how God has the power to give us strength and peace in any situation.
The first requirement is to have faith that Jesus is our Savior, accept Him in our lives and have faith that He has all the power and love to help in every stage of our life. Romans 8: 6 “For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.” If we give God the first place He deserve and believe Him, he will take care of our lives.
Let us ask God to help us to leave, remove, alienate, and dispose of our lives that bad habit of getting up every morning, and hear first “discouragement”; instead of listening, reading or remembering the word of God. We will be better every day and learn to depend on God to feel peace and to work all the circumstances of our lives. I wish you continue growing every day more in your relationship with God. Be blessed and receive God peace.
