in #life6 years ago (edited)


Discouragement is the act of making something less likely to happen or of making people less likely to do something. It is also a feeling of having lost hope or confidence.
Merriam Webster Dictionary

Discouragement is one of the quiet killer of the brave and the secret assassin of the mighty.

Discouragement is one of the thieves that can steal the crown of champions and dug the grave of stars.

Discouragement has turned many Gehazis(potential, great battle axes in God’s hands) into Gorillas (Ugly vessels of shame) due to impatience and searching for Shortcuts to glory.

Discouragement has whispered to thousands that their glory hour is afar off, yet it was so near and they gave up just before their miracle.

Life is a journey that is not always smooth, if we keep looking into the ugly/rough path of the journey, we might easily be discouraged but when we keep looking into the destination which we are heading to, we will be strengthened to carry on and end it well.

If you can find a path with no obstacles, it probably doesn’t lead anywhere.

You can draw strength from the well-equipped armory of Jean De La Bruyere: “Out of Difficulties grow miracles”
