seek encouragement

Table for two.
Coffee for two.
Movie for two.
Vacation for two.
Misery for one.

Why am I discouraged? Why is my heart so sad? I will put my hope in God! I will praise him again— my Savior.  Psalm 42:5

Are you are in the dumps, feeling blue, discouraged, depressed, oppressed, exhausted? Are you upset with life, with people, with God? I want to encourage you today to seek encouragement.

Seek encouragement in God's Word. (start here: Psalm 107)
Seek encouragement in prayer. (simply talking to God)
Seek encouragement in praise. (read this: Praise won the battle)
Seek encouragement in God's people. (email me. Don't be afraid or ashamed to reach out.)

The thought is full of comfort that He who has established the boundary lines ofour lives has also determined the boundaries of our tribulation. -Allistair Begg

Hits the spot as always. Needed to read that today. Will it help??? Hope so. Allistair Begg is the bomb. Got a great message from him about worship. Thanks for your encouragement. Hard being a lone ranger when you don't want to be one. God Bless!
