Discouragement's Cure

When we give way to discouragement, 

we feel more like prisoners who are condemned 

than children who trust. 

We act as though the circumstances that confound us 

are too difficult even for the Almighty God. 

We tend to think the path the Lord will show us 

is marked obedience and hard work

but ahead of these things comes love. 

It is God’s love for us and ours for Him 

that forms the firm path 

that allows us to walk in His will without stumbling. 

Discouragement evaporates in the light of His revealing love, 

and our forgiven sin then becomes a reflection of His light 

to lead others to the freedom we’ve found.


But everything exposed by the light becomes visible—
and everything that is illuminated becomes a light.
Ephesians 5:13 NIV

--From day 40
