“Depression begins with disappointment. When disappointment festers in our soul, it leads to discouragement.”
~ Joyce Meyer


We all get discouraged, don’t we? Life often ebbs and flows; many find themselves on the mountaintop one day and in a valley the next! We don’t want to get discouraged and don’t like how this inconsistency makes us feel, but we are all susceptible to it because of our flawed and fallen human nature. 

We’ve also inherited discouragement tendencies from people in our lives. It’s a fact that life’s circumstances can shape our mindsets, but as children of God, we are told not to be discouraged, so how do we not allow it to overtake us?
