The only way I can get over discouragement is to take my eyes off the issue and focus on God. I find reading the bible an immense help, there are so many promises in there that God Himself is going to help us and give us strength and wisdom. As I start reading my eyes are taken off myself and are put straight on to Him. He is the very opposite of discouragement - He is a God of ENcouragement! He promises to help, guide and protect us. He gives us hope and enables us to overcome and get on with things again.

This was a fun project to do. The scripture verses are really uplifting too so no chance of any discouragement sinking in!
Are you going through a period of discouragement at the moment. I pray that you read these verses or your bible, focus on God and allow Him to lift you up.
Blessings to you.
