SOMETIMES I GET DISCOURAGED

Sometimes I get discouraged.
It just happens.
Things can seem to be very normal,
when all of a sudden it hits.
Discouragement.....without warning.
It wraps its arms around me....
gets a tight grip and squeezes....firmly.
It holds me captive.
My emotions start to swirl.
I go from downheartedness
to the depths of dismay.....and back again.
I feel down. I want to give up.....give in.
I see life through the dark glasses
of gloom and despair.
The dark nights get long.....and longer,
like the dawn will never come.
BUT.......the dawn DOES come.
And the miracle of LIGHT
makes the darkness disappear.
In the middle of the word
disCOURAGEment
is the word COURAGE.
COURAGE is the LIGHT
that makes the darkness
of discouragement disappear.
It takes COURAGE to CHOOSE
to fight discouragement.
But COURAGE is what wins battles.
COURAGE defeats Goliath.
COURAGE is having the strength to go on.
It’’s a decision to fight.
It leads to triumph.
Within me, within each of us, lies COURAGE.
It’s a powerful TOOL to fight
discouragement.
And if we want VICTORY and WELL-BEING,
we’ll use it.
