In the process of your giving of thanks you will find yourself entering into the praise and worship of God! This will relieve your discouragement. Choose to Worship & Praise God through your circumstances.
Discouragement is a Distrust for the Future.
But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him. (Heb 11:6)
Discouragement is an Indifference for Opportunity.
Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven. (Matt 5:14-16)
But godliness with contentment is great gain. For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out. And having food and raiment let us be therewith content. (1 Tim 6:6-8)
Discouragement is an Insecurity for Tomorrow.
Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. (Prov 3:5-6)
Hope deferred maketh the heart sick: but when the desire cometh, it is a tree of life. (Prov 13:12)
Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted within me? hope thou in God: for I shall yet praise him, who is the health of my countenance, and my God. (Psa 42:11)
Discouragement is an impatience with time. Have patience with God’s time.
To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: (Eccl 3:1)
Be full of faith!! Faith says I can!! Remember this too will pass!!
