When Discouragement Strikes
You had a feeling it was coming, but tried to hope for the best. In spite of your hopes and prayers though, discouragement didn’t just come knocking. No, she barreled down the front door and made herself right at home in your living room. Oh, I don’t know if it was because
- your father was diagnosed with cancer
- or your best friend had an affair
- maybe it was your teenager choosing the wrong friends
- or your baby niece was born with developmental difficulties
You tried to figure out what to do. You reasoned, borrowed logic from your best friends, and requested all manner of advice. But discouragement was taking a nap on your couch and as it turns out, she is quite the couch potato.
I’ve been there. Those moments of desperation when I tried my best to keep my head above water, but found myself sinking fast.
It’s been a journey, and even at that, I still fail at times to do what I know is best in despair– run.
Run to God’s Word as quickly as I can get myself there.
The problem is that sometimes I can’t get my legs to move. I become so overwhelmed at all that is going on in the situation that I lose the ability to control my movements and I feel paralyzed. I feel like giving up.
How to Keep Going
Discovering the strength to take one more step is where we can begin to overcome the overwhelming! We often have a general idea of what we need to do- like run to God’s Word. But what we need is someone come alongside us and say, “I know you’re hurting. Can I help? Here’s a key verse for when you feel overwhelmed…Would these steps of prayer help you gain strength?” Someone just to guide us little by little.
For whatever reason you are tempted to quit, today you’ve discovered a resource to help you replace the feelings of despair with the truth of Scripture. You can be an overcomer when all you feel is overwhelmed.
One More Step will help you find the courage to keep going, one step at a time.
Take the One More Step Challenge!
