Discouragement
Discouragement is something we all identify with and have experienced in our lives.  It can come from simple things such as failing to do well on a test at school, not being able to do something we had planned or looked forward to.  At times it can be things of greater magnitude.  There are times it comes from failed relationships, job losses, physical difficulties and sickness.  However it may come, discouragement is always tough to deal with.  There are great saints of old that have wrestled with the problem.  One that so often comes to my mind is David who often wrote of his feelings of discouragement in the Psalms.  In Psalm 142 he wrote about his spirit being overwhelmed within him.  In Psalm 143 he said practically the same thing again.  There are times we feel overwhelmed in spirit and discouraged.  But the thing is what we do about it.  David prayed about his discouragement and asked the Lord to lift him up from it.  When you feel so low in spirit within, do as David did, cry out to the Lord who is your Refuge and Strength.  Ask His help to hear you and lift you from the discouragement you face.  Truly He does care about our deepest needs and He will hear your cries today.
