Do not lose heart

Discouragement is something that causes people to lose heart. Why is it dangerous to lose heart? You lose your joy, passion, and fire. It is pulled out of you when you lose heart. King David knew that when people lose heart they play into the enemies hand and are then easy to defeat. Do not lose heart by fixing your eyes on the discouraging circumstances life hands you. Surround yourself with people that encourage your passion for God. Build up your spirit by good teaching, read, listen to good sermons, pray, and worship. Discouragement is common. It's like mud. But you have a choice to roll in it or walk past it.

If only I can remember this during the election because I am so discouraged.
