Slaying the Giants In Your Life~ Destroying Discouragement

13 Jan

From the Heart

Louise Gibson




Can you recognize the enemy?
There’s a battle to be won.
Know what you are fighting-
Your armor is the Son!


There are three ways to live:
You can live out-
You can wear out,
You can burn out!


It’s erroneous to say
working too hard is burnout.
Working hard “at the right thing”
is what it’s all about.


Bring everything out of that “anxiety closet”
and expose it to the light.
When looked at as they truly are,
you can put them all to flight!


Emotions are treacherous advisors.
We need to be disciplined and stay on track.
Work can be wonderful therapy.
It will get your confidence back.


The biblical story of David
can turn your life around.
Get your slingshot ready-
“Discouragement”, you are going DOWN!”


Psalm 46:1-3

God is our refuge and strength.
A very present help in trouble,
Therefore, we will not fear.
Though the earth be removed
and though the mountains be carried
into the midst of the sea;
Though its waters roar and be troubled,
Tho the mountains shake with its swelling.

    Great piece. I had been reading that scripture this week and marveling at this promise.

    Thank you, DIvoran. The Cross says it all, doesn’t it? My heart swells with emotion every time I look at it!
    God bless!
