Discouragement; it’s not something we like to talk about or experience. But all of us face discouragement in our lives at one time or another. There seem to be an infinite number of things that can go wrong for us. Those we thought were our friends may turn against us. That really hurts. We face sickness, disease, and death. The plans we so carefully made, fall apart and our expectations are smashed beyond repair. Misfortune stalks us and our finances vanish in a black hole. I don’t need to go on with that discouraging list do I?
