Written for Christians, this article assists in recognising ways in which discouragement may present in the everyday, not only in failed outcomes, but also in our behaviour. Helpfully, we are reminded where strength and encouragement are to be found.
"The truth is, most of us don’t like the look of discouragement. It feels embarrassing. Why? Because discouragement by definition–the lack of courage–is indeed a form of weakness. Rather than confess or confront it, we’re tempted to ignore or overlook and certainly to attempt to conceal it from others who might correct or condemn us. But when we avoid areas of our own insufficiency, we also avoid finding the help we so desperately need."
