Conquer Discouragement

Divorce and its spin-offs are fraught with difficult challenges and discouraging situations. You know what I mean if you’re dealing with divorce. What you might not know is that there is reason to have hope.19848594_s

  • Yes, there is hope.
  • Yes, there are ways to build your courage.
  • Discouragement doesn’t have to be a permanent state.

In addition to becoming intentional about healing from divorce, and in addition to the daily life strategies I cover in this blog, here are a few critical things you need to know…

You Can Build Your Courage through Faith

When you feel weak…you can find strength in God,

But I will sing of your strength, in the morning I will sing of your love; for you are my fortress, my refuge in times of trouble.” (Psalm 59:16 NIV)

When you want to cry…you can cry out to Jesus,

“Turn to me and be gracious to me, for I am lonely and afflicted. The troubles of my heart have multiplied; free me from my anguish.”  (Psalm 25:16-17 NIV)

When distrust seeps in…you can trust the Lord,

The Lord is good, a refuge in times of trouble.  He cares for those who trust him.”  (Nahum 1:7 NIV)

When you are lonely…you can rest in the arms of the Holy Spirit,

Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.   (Matthew 11:28 NIV)

When you are sinking…you can reach out and God will take your right hand and lift you,

Yet, I still belong to you; you hold my right hand.  You guide me with your counsel, leading me to a glorious destiny.  (Psalm 73:23-24 NLT)

When you feel worthless…you can know the Father values you, indeed Jesus died for you,

I have come into the world as a light, so that no one who believes in me should stay in darkness.”  (John 12:46 NIV)

When hope fades…you can know that God has a future and a plan for good for you,

‘For I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.'”  (Jeremiah 29:11 NIV)

God can heal your chaos, loss, and hurt. He can even use it for good,

Be still and know that I am God….”  (Psalm 46:10 NIV)

God is with you.  He will see you through all of life’s travails.  Seek him, trust him, and rest in him.
