When Discouragement Hits Hard

Title: When Discouragement Hits Hard
Artwork by: YMI
Description: Whenever we encounter setbacks in life, or in our spiritual walk, we may think that it’s simply a matter of trying again, but to try harder this time, and persevere in doing so. 

But sometimes trying harder just doesn’t do anything at all, and this realisation make us feel  completely deflated. And that’s how discouragement sinks its hooks into us. 

We need to recognise that this is one of our Enemy’s greatest tactics against us, and we can’t “get out of it” by our own willpower. So, instead of “trying harder” in our own strength, we can choose to let ourselves fall into God’s lap, and ask Him to lift us up.
